  • Nice clean beach, with a huge parking lot, clean bath rooms and less crowd. Perfect to see the sunset. Dont forget to get some food from Aunt Carries nearby.
  • Big parking lot, easy to park but must come early. Fair prices, running toilets, shop, food/drinks. Gets very crowded during summer seasion. Good for families with small kids. Small waves make it easy to leean how to swim. We wanted a change and see RI but prefer Cape Cod though. They offered free antigen and PCR testing so we did it. Nice benefit :)
  • Nice beach, but very rocky along the shore line getting into the water. Has a playground which is nice when it's not too hot to slide down the slide. Pavilion also!
  • Nice, clean beach. Ample parking.
  • This is a wonderful beach for small kids and families. Great small waves, a wonderful snack shack and a playground! Does get very crowded.
