It is a simple 15 minute walk from the Casita. Food is available during the summer. There are volleyball courts, a kids play area, bathrooms and showers. The lifeguards are there year round.

Moonlight beach's features are pretty unique for the area. There are some nice lookouts away from the sand where you can enjoy the views sans sand, nearby coffee and ice cream shops to grab a refreshment before heading down to the water, bonfire pits, bathrooms, showers, lifeguard station, snack…

Moonlight Beach is a great local beach, as it has showers, bathrooms, snackbar and an area to rent boogie boards and more. It also has Vollyball courts & free Summer Concerts ~ every Sunday ~from July 3-Aug 31st.

This is a very popular beach. I actually prefer to go to other beaches like Swami's to the south a mile or two away. Still, this is a good starting point. You can walk for miles in either direction from here if the tide is not high. You can swim, surf, boogie board, or just take it easy.
