The beach is kilometers long and unpopulated in a gulf which also makes it very safe in case you loose your gear (you will always drift ashore). Plenty of space to launch. Beach is wide enough for launching even with high tide, some trees to pay attention to, but in general comfortable launches/recoveries. The beach just south of the jetty and is a very long stretch all ridable.
