Atwater Park Beach
Slightly off the beaten track, this quiet, family-friendly beach is an excellent choice if you want to avoid the crowds. It features a big playground for the kids and the large Spillover II sculpture for the culture-hungry adults. The beach is accessible by climbing down several flights of stairs (or a long, winding paved path), so don’t leave your flip-flops in the car because you’ll need them for your descent. Also, bring your surfboard because the waves here are to die for.
