People tend to check in during these times:
great access to the beach plus picnic tables and marinelife center.
the marinelife center is amazing, you can see a video on youtube by looking for sustainable life with barry benjamin, picnic tables are behind the center and across the beach road is the beach.
Bring $5 for donation. Make a day of it. Beach across the street from marine life center. Park for kids :)
Lots of nice areas to bring your lunch in and relax under a pavilion.
