Went with friends for lunch. Took over a hour to get the food. Lobster Bisque was really lobster broth. Pricing was way to high.

Great beach. We took my cousin’s little girls to the spray park. They are 8 and 6 years old. They were way too old for the spray park. Frankly, they were bored. Little kids only!

At Tobay, you can enjoy the ocean, bay, spray park and dining. I just took my grandchildren to the spray park. It was great! I took a chair, blanket, light snacks and they had a ball!

This beach is in serious decline . Slopes downward after 10 feet of beach , always tire tracks and dirty sand and the tunnel still filled with water after 40 years .

The Beach is awesome and the bar by the beach makes a perfect combo. We went twice after 5 pm and were able to access the beach for free.

There are 2 restaurants on the Bay side at Tobay. The Crazy Oyster is sand level and is open every day. Mango Bay is farther back and elevated but you should check when they are open.
