Well-maintained beach that goes on and on. The only drawback is that a resident sticker's required in season. Aside from the beach, there's a long walking trail that takes you along scenic inlets. A real treasure.

Honestly, $20 parking to go to the beach for the day? Don’t get me wrong, nice beach, but very narrow, not overly crowded, but it’s just a beach. Nothing overly special.

This beach was simply awesome in February. The weather was wonderful. The children found seashells and crabshells. Since there were few people this time of year, it was like having the ocean to yourself. The wind can pick up quickly and be cold, so wear...More
