Beach closed for coliform bacteria . 4 days of beach vacation ruined.

We were really disappointed by staff and rules from this beach. We arrived at 2pm and gave a snack our 4 kids. By the time we arrive in the changing room there was an announcement saying that we should leave the beach for at least 30 min. as there were lightning (good point they take care of people security). We decided to leave and requested a refund for the parking and the staff directed us to the office for 'refund'... where there is no refund. We did not put our feet in the sand. 10$ for nothing... This was not really kind and customer friendly.

beach has great potential with proper management. By the looks of it the employes do the bare minimum. There's weeds growing all over, leaves and debris scattered throughout the beach and in missolanious spots. Someone needs to take the initiative to make this a great beach instead of average to poor beach. Don't be afraid of a little work pull some weeds, rake some leaves pretty simple.

Way too many rules and too crowded. Kids could not play any games on sand. You really can't swim because it is roped off at waist deep. I will never go back.

I rated it a 2 because we waited for a life guard to come on the left side for 2 hours so far and they still aren't here when they said they would an hour ago, there was a lot of family's waiting to go in the water and the lifeguards were just standing around doing nothing! Very unhappy!!

Beach is ok but between memorial day and july 4th, the schedule is very strange, inconsistent. There is a beach next to this one that is nice but swimming is not supposed to be allowed, but people swim there anyways because million dollar beach is closed so often.
