Tip: This is a no-frills beach, meaning there are no snacks stands, stores or flushable toilets nearby, which means you’ll have to settle for the porta-potties along the highway. As a result of off-shore drilling, there’s also a chance you’ll leave the beach with spots of tar on your feet. We swear by orange pumice automotive hand cleaner to remove the sticky stuff quickly.
