“The perfect beach.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2013

I've been to many beaches on the South shore of Long Island, and this is my favorite because its only $8/car & the walk from parking lot to beach is nothing!

“Very expensive entrance fee...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 January 2013

Being that public money is helping restore the south shore of LI back to where it was pre Sandy, I really hope that the people of the Town of Hempstead allow non town residents to enter without paying $25.

Pros:

It is a beautiful beach when compared to other LI beaches. I have been surfing this beach all my life.

The waves here are usually 1 foot bigger than other western nassau beaches when there is a swell. the place performs very well on chest to head high days with a stiff northwest wind.

I would not reccomend this beach to people who are not surfing because there is no swimming allowed.

The sand is a great white powder consistant with the Hamptons.

The people there are not what you would find at Jones Beach. You will not hear boom boxes blairing or fights breaking out among drunk, low-class teens.


Cons:

The beach entry fee is highway robbery. There is no reason why a beach should cost 25 dollars!

There are times in the summer when seaweed infests the break. I have had surf sessions when I had to pull 4 pounds of seaweed off of my leash and fins. Its gross.

In August, for what ever reasons, jellyfish tend to infest the beach more than any other beach.

The parking sucks. You are parking on gravel or grass. Pave the damn thing already.

“Some Of The Softest Sand Underfoot In The World!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2012

This beach can get pretty crowded, sand bars appear from time to time to give you safe swimming, and if you're lucky, as we have been, you'll see dolphins cavorting offshore/ Other than these facts, the title says the most important part of all.

“Cute little beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2012

Compare to Jones beach, this beach has a very very short walk from parking lot. On a good day it get crowded but so does Jones. If you have kids, this is a very good beach since you don't have to drag everything walking on sand for half a mile before you see water. We love coming here. We found out you can see a lot of baby clams and they are so cute! The wash off station is nice as well.
