  • Great beach, lots of sand and even some grassy areas off the water great for flying kites or tossing a football around. Plenty of picnic tables so you don't have to fight over them, and they have real restroom facilities. Way better than fighting with the traffic at Hampton.
  • I prefer this beach to others because of nearby bathrooms and a nearby parking lot though it's a bit expensive. It gets fairly crowded at high tide so it's worth checking before you go.
  • Great beach with easy access parking. Only 15 dollars to park for the whole day. There are bathrooms and a snack shop near the parking lot area. Beach itself is very nice. Staff are friendly and there are lifeguards on duty as well.
  • A very nice smallish beach area with well maintained changing rooms available during the summer.
  • Wonderful beach. Parking is overpriced. Too much tourism I guess.
