  • Some family friends introduced us to Seabright State Beach and this has become our family’s favorite beach. I almost don't want to write a review about this beach because I don't want more people to....  more »
  • Got lucky with the very warm weather last week. Relaxing and beautiful beach. Kids flying kites brought me back to my youth.  more »

  • My friend forgot her phone at the bench just before the entrance to the beach. We traced our steps back to to the bench and found a dude sat on it. I asked if he found a phone, and thankfully he had it in his back pocket. He said he was waiting for somebody to come back and get it. I knew he wasn't planning on stealing it because he wouldn't have stayed to wait. Good place. Good people. 10/10 would lose phone again.
  • Mello Beach. Not very crowded.
  • The sand is amazing! Its grittier than most and the water is almost endless! It is as far west as I can drive... but on the other hand it is a rental car. 🤔
  • A wonderful place to hangout with family. Really loved the scenic views. Even during COVID-19, we saw lots of people coming to the beach with their families and spending time with their loved ones. Social distancing was not really followed, but everyone maintained socialization with their own families/friends. Lifeguards were on duty as well. I really appreciate their effort and dedication for serving the community during this time. Hats off to the unrecognized heroes. Finding parking takes a bit of time, better to be early. Apart from that, this beach is a great place to spend a weekend day.
  • A great place. The beach is awesome and the pier next by is a lot of fun. Even with a lot of stuff closed you can still have a lot of fun. We came across this guy blowing massive bubbles in the morning and honestly it was way cooler than it sounds!
