Low tide is best. 3-400 yards on each side of the pier. South is usually better. This beach gets imported , piped in sand. Avoid the underneath and seating area at base of pier at night. Homeless , Hoodlums , Homies all tend to hang there. Many stabbings occur in this area. Good luck !

Thank you, KOB! Low tide will be mid morning today, Monday 6/29. Will be around the pier during that time.

That is what I call good local knowledge. Good that you shared it with the visitor.

Why.... yes..... I'm glad you asked. The rules at this beach are : you send me 30% of all your finds. I accept PayPal.
