    Lovely, uncrowded beach the days we were there midweek. The water is crystal clear & the sand is soft. There are chairs & umbrellas available for rental. Paid showers are also available. It cost $2/token which gives you 4 minutes to rinse off. The confession stand serves for prepared by Rebecca's & our food was delicious & freshly made. I had a cheeseburger with lettuce tomato and pickles. It was a delightful surprise.

    I wish they didn't close the bath house so early - at 5:45 - but otherwise I really love this place, and have since I was a little boy. A small concession stand serves up hot dogs and fries and some ice cream, and there are changing rooms, toilets, and token-operated showers. The beach is a long swoop of soft white sand, mild surf, and no undertoad. Perfect for the kids.

    Gorgeous beach with great swimming. The best part, on leash dogs are allowed! Labor day was not crowded, easy to find a spot to yourself. Well worth the ferry trip!
