  • Great public beach and worth visiting for sure. A lot less crowded then oak bluffs beaches. I would recommend public bus down here
  • A quiet beach that is near to some of the fanciest homes on the island. Lay out a while and then hit the road biking in your bathing suit to check out some of the nearby houses - a perfect window shopping experience!
  • Great open beach. Although it may be known for their "big waves", these waves only make an appearance every so often. Despite that, this is a nice, clean fairly large beach.
  • Had great fun with good friends.
  • Best beach for people that love big waves. There HUGE! Not recommended for young children or those that can't swim.
