Like I said, Montrose Beach is absolutely enormous. You’ll pretty much always find space for your beach towel, or even a tent big enough to throw a party in. I love this beach because it has the most cultural diversity. You’ll hear every language, see an amazing variety of bathing costumes, and find lots of different ethnic foods. Be sure to stop by one of “mango ladies” stands that sell unbelievably ripe mangoes sprinkled with hot pepper and lime juice — to die for! Or grab a taco from one of the guys frying up spicy meat on a hubcap. Sounds super sketchy, but the tacos are fabulous! And if you see a lady roaming up and down the beach with a cooler in tow, flag her down and try some of the world’s best tamales.
