Great beach

Not much parking for this beach, which makes it not crowded. Sand is beautiful and white. There is a place to eat and get drinks near by.

Nice, quiet beach this time of year. We watched the sunrise every morning and took long walks on the beach. The sand is soft, and there is some good shelling. We didn't bring our dogs, but it is a dog friendly beach, and people manage them well and clean up after them.

There were quite a few people enjoying the beach. There are plenty of benches and several restaurants near by. We spent some time there taking photos and walked down... More

This is the ugliest beach I have ever been to because of the 3 foot pipeline running the whole length of the beach (maybe even the whole island). The pipe is an engineering effort to refurbish the beach and stabilize the area, but it is rusty and unattractive. To access the beach you walk across the sand dunes on boardwalks... More

Watched the sun rise over the Atlantic from this beach. It was beautiful. Found some shells, saw fisherman casting, runners and walkers and families enjoying this wide beach. The beach is wide and the homes and businesses have dunes and sawgrass, so you have dunes behind you as you sit on the beach. You can walk and drive on this... More

Arrived at the park in the mid morning. Lite pedestrian use at this time of the morning. Tempature in the mid 70's. The area appeared to have ample parking but I can see the parking getting congested on the weekend. A play area for kids, picnic tables, a skateboard park area, a boardwalk and easy access to the beach and... More

The beach is beautiful, the water is almost crystal clear. It's not too crowded, very relaxing. The miniature golf is a fun time with a great view. Easily accessible clean bathrooms are definitely a plus!
