  • The sand was immaculate. Really a gorgeous beach. The waves are too rough for my little ones, but the sand was very nice and fun to play in for them.  more »

  • I'm a big beach person, and while this isn't my favorite, it's pretty great. They do have concessions which are reasonably priced, and even have breakfast! Burgers are good, and the omelette is of the greasy spoon western variety which I love! So hard to get those in Brooklyn. My only problem, and this extends to NY beaches in general is the absurd insistence that people don't swim without a life guard. I've never seen that anywhere else and will never understand that bizarre fixation. Bring a surfboard though and they don't care.
  • I love the beach! So, this place could have been awful and I would still have loved it. It was $25 to park which was sort of steep if you ask me, but the beach is great and it’s nice to have a little concession stand and bathroom to use. The water was amazing when we were there for July 4! My brother in law surfs and was able to catch some waves here as well.
  • Cozy beach, great intimate setting for those who love to beach but don’t necessarily want to be surrounded by people. Great beach for a quiet day of relaxing. My boyfriend and I got some delicious Italian food from up the road and enjoyed it in his truck on the beach. We saw a few small families, couples and a some lone beach goers with their dogs. It felt very private and quaint.
  • lovely beach with as nature intended coastline as far as the eye can see. the sand is particularly diggable if you like excavating and remarkably heat friendly to bare feet. the water was a little murkier and seaweedy than i expected and reasonably fresh in august as is most of the Atlantic but lifeguard monitored so family friendly even if the conditions are not challengin. The snack back has toilets and the fried fish was good, the chips less so. You can hire beach chairs and buy other bits and bobs including suntan lotion and there's a freshwater shower on the plastic decking. I reached the beach via a hotel courtesy bus, for all private cars there's a fee though.
  • Great place to pay to get your feet wet and kick sand around.
