  • Beautiful beach! We loved it! We were there on a Sunday, and it wasn't too crowded. Free parking, boardwalk, lifeguard, soft sand, plenty of seashells, beautiful waves. The restrooms and showers are a...  read more »
  • We love this park at Bethune Beach. Parking is free and you can visit the ocean and there is also a park across the street by the river. 
  • A very nice beach, quiet & away from the crowds. Pavilions, Bathrooms & showers. Nice boardwalk to just look out on the ocean. Wonderful 
  • Went there today from 2-5pm. Beach was clean, lifeguard was friendly. Parking was so easy and Free! The beach was not packed at all. Plenty of room, very family oriented. Bathrooms were clean. There were two shower heads outside bathrooms. Good pressure and got the job done. I will defiantly be bringing my family back again.
  • This beach is not bad but not the area you want to relax swimming in, due to the waves being monstrous and sometimes overwhelming. If you want to surf or boogie board, this place is a 4 star for sure. The beach itself is long and wide and over many miles long. Parking is good until pack but best times are after 5pm or early morning.
  • Great place for a beach day. Park extends from beach to river with multiple pavilions tennis and basketball courts as well as a playground. You can often view manatees in the cove and many times during the day there is a lifeguard at the beach.
  • A very nice beach. A bit of a drive from where we usually go, but it seemed worth the few extra minutes to travel. The access has plenty of free parking and there is a bathroom and outside showers. The small park is pet friendly and has a few picnic tables and BBQ grills for cooking. I will definitely be going back to this beach.
  • This place is great! No crowds no trash.. Clean bathrooms and free parking... SAY WHAT??
