So weekdays are hit and miss but I have never been down there, even on Friday, when there have been a lot of people unless is was part of a long weekend. But even last Friday, although is was the observed federal holiday, was not crowded and certainly fewer people than I expected to see. You may be the the only one on the beach for 2 miles in either direction or there could be half a dozen or so up near the Old Pier. Nearly always there are a few people at the entrance near the parking lot and for about 1/4 mile East along the beach, mostly tourists and people fishing. The good news is you probably won't have to worry about the GW as their money making days, if they head out, are Saturday and Sunday.
