  • i was there today i fall sleep at my chair and i order a drinks they said no im not gonna give you drinks anymore F#$% racist i hate that place full of RACIST Im gonna report this
  • Beautiful little beach access point, short walk from Hancock tower. Gorgeous view of the Skyline on one side and the rich Blue colors of Lake Michigan on the other. Definitely recommend this.
  • Relaxing family Sunday! Wonderful and relaxing time. Public bathrooms should be renovated though.
  • Nice place for sunbathing. Had fun riding the rental bikes on the paths to Navy Pier and Grant Park. There were a few detours and lots of foot traffic, but the views were priceless!
  • Great beach. But the umbrella and recliners are so expensive (I get its a big city, but still). And we came there at 2.30pm. Paid for it. The guy in charge of rentals didn't say that he closes at 4pm... !!! So pair of recliners $10ea and $15 for the umbrella for 1.5hour.. How awesome?!
