Great public beach with access to a bar/grill right there?

Upham is a great little public beach. My girls loved collecting shells, playing in the sand, and swimming in the surf. The beach does have colossal yellow sand bags that help to... read more

Upham is a great little public beach. My girls loved collecting shells, playing in the sand, and swimming in the surf. The beach does have colossal yellow sand bags that help to keep the beach there. Rent a cabana and chairs for the day. Paradise Grille is steps away with good food and great beer specials. WATCH OUT for the... More

Absolutely stunning. Very pedestrian location. Restaurants, stores and more very accessible. But you can find a little hideaway and be very private.

TEENAGERS EVERYWHERE smoking cigarettes and other things. Sand is hard, flies are everywhere and seagulls will steal food literally out of your mouth. Overcrowded and parking is a nightmare-$40 for 3 hours!!!

We have friends in from out of town staying at Tradewinds so we invited them out with us yesterday to Upham Beach. Much more quiet and secluded, no kids running around screaming. Very peaceful and serene. This is our favorite beach to go to down here now.

Unfortunately, because it is a public... More

Beautifully kept natural beach where you can hear yourself think, feel the warm sun on you and clear you mind. Nice, quite place for those that are true beach combers.

Nice beach to go to that is not overly crowded. Beautiful sand and is very cleanly. Not as much to do as pass-a-grille but a nice little place to catch the beach life effect.
