  • Headlands beach is a great way to spend a hot summer day or just to walk in the evening to see the sunset. I can say that some of the sunsets on Lake Erie are more spectacular than those on Key West (...  more »
  • Very nice place. Huge stretch of beach. There are life guard stations most of the beach. The farther down toward the end, there are not any stations and it is usually less crowded. They have concessio...  more »
  • Yes, the best secret of Mentor! Wild part of Headlands with (unfinished) boardwalk thru the dunes access is perfect for after work relax, Scrabble or just sunset watching. Better than beach at Marta's...  more »

  • Very nice beach, we went mid afternoon on an overcast kinda dreary day & it was warm but nice because not a lot of people maybe 10 including the 5 of us. It's beautiful, I love nature & the sound of the waves, looking for sea glass, playing in the sand with the kids & putting our feet in the water. The bathrooms were typical beach/park restrooms. Lots of places to park. Very Rocky by water maybe wear water shoes or crocks with the strap. Take an extra bag for trash.
  • A beautiful, well kept park with sandy beaches (although there are some rocky areas), grills, picnic areas and a great view of the Fairport Harbor lighthouse. It's one of the nicest beaches in Northeast Ohio!
  • Clean, huge beach. No trash cans on beach so be prepared. No bouys to section off swimming section from boating/jetski area. Water is Rocky so beware if you have sensitive feet. Gets deep fast.
  • Well kept park. Plenty of space. There were a few families there tonight with plenty of too for their kids to run around.
  • Very well kept park. Great views of the sunset over the lake. Great place to have a picnic or go for a bike ride.
