We love this beach but it is usually hard to get into. The parking lot is often full. The only negative yesterday was that there was a lot of seaweed in the water which I hate.

Came here with my spouse on July 3. We arrived about 11 AM. There were still a lot of parking spots. The cost was $14 for out of state residents. The beach was quite crowded, cool temperature and very foggy which I think is common...More

Located in the middle of a beach resort area with local dining choices surrounding, a large parking facility, good walking beach. Crowded on summer weekends. Arrive early morning or mid-afternoon. Views to Block Island on a clear day.

The parking lot is big, the sand is nice, and the waves roll in in a way conducive to boogie-boarding and easy for little kids, but in late July and August, red seaweed can be thick and off-putting

This beautiful coastline is a perfect beach to relax. More of a local beach vs a big tourist spot. Plenty of parking, lifeguards, very nice and clean restrooms and hot showers and snack bar. Beautiful deck area to also sit and enjoy the view of...More

I almost hate to tell everyone how great this place is because I don't want it to get more crowded! Very long white sand beach with moderate waves. Often has some seaweed but it didn't dampen my pleasure. Beautiful pavilion with showers, bathrooms, and a...More

I am writing this review to help out of towners know what to expect. This is a gorgeous beach. Clean, white sands but every year it gets nasty "red tide" which is loads of sea wood and it can smell. I love so much about...More
