Went to Magens Bay to check out the "Big Beach". I think it spans around 3/4 mile long.
Cost $5/person to get in and there is LOTS of parking. My suggestion is to drive all the way down to the left once you pay and park near the end.
Been told this beach gets very crowded with cruise shippers, so we went on a day with only 1 ship at port. Was very nice and not nearly as crowded as we have heard it gets.
Not the most beautiful of beaches, but spans a decent distance which made it pretty nice.
There are restroom/changing houses in several locations. There is also a bar and walk-up restaurant.. Suggest bringing your own food as the restaurant is pretty Americanized with burgers, chicken sandwich, hot dogs, and even whole pizzas. Burgers and such were $10. Would have rather had brought a deli sandwich in a cooler.
If you like long walks on the beach or water jogging, this is the place to do it. At dusk there were also lots of people that came to work out by running along the beach and parking lots drives.
Check the papers for cruise ship schedules to make sure you come on a slow ship day.
