There's a parking charge. There's a restroom next to the parking lot. The beach is a very short walk away from the parking lot. There's picnic tables. A very short walk is an historic building, "The Little Red Schoolhouse". It's worth looking at.

Stopped by the park the other day. The beach and water are very nice. Good place for families and for just taking a walk by yourself.

This beach wasn’t very crowded and there was ample parking but it was expensive ($5 an hour). There’s a big drop off right off the shore so it doesn’t stay very shallow long. There is also a hill to walk up to get to the...More

This place tends not to get too busy. The only issue can be the parking and make sure you pay or you will get a ticket! Nice for a family but bring your shade or you will get fried all year !

There is plenty of room on this beach on the south side of the island to spread out and not feel overwhelmed by the crowds. Beautiful blue water, and lots of sand. There are restroom facilities available. You may have to pay for parking, but...More

Easy access to a great sandy beach. Parking is free for 2 hours for some of the spaces, and $5/hr for the rest. Friendly and helpful life guards to answer questions for a flatlander about the rip currents and man-o-war warnings up when the wind...More

This is the perfect beach to relax. Quiet, not loaded kind of private beach. Parking is 4.00$ or 5.00$ per hour so a little expensive. There is restroom in the parking. There is no accomodations, you can do picnic there in family. Very very clean!
