“Pyramid rock is very reliable. I live probably 20 minutes away, and that's me riding my bike to the beach. It's easy access if you are military, active duty, guard, or reservist. but the only downside is that it is located on the Marine Corps Base. I personally can't complain because being on the base keeps dumb ahole tourists off of the beach and out of the water. The only thing that I hate more than the tourists, are the life guards. They are constantly repeating false information and purposely alerting the beach goers of shark sightings just to get cut back early and go home 3 hours early. Another problem with this beach is they have no respect for personal space, on multiple occasions the team of life guards has driven over my belongings on their ATVS. Overall ratings. 2.5 outta 10”
