Stopped with my husband as we were headed home to NJ from MD. What a total disappointment! Litter everywhere - EVERYWHERE. Would not recommend - certainly not to families that need to watch for small children; broken glass on the beach, bathrooms were filthy, trash strewn in the bbq areas - with people just sitting amid the trash! The State... More

Just don't go ! The worst beach experience ever. Dirty everywhere including the sand and the water. Filled with camps and grills. The bathroom was just horrible !!

The site is unfortunately close to Baltimore harbor. We visit either early in the Spring or late in the Fall. We don't get in the water here. This beach would be perfect for sunbathing or sports on land. It is very flat. Bringing bicycles would be a good idea.

Convenient to Maryland and DC, Sandy Point offers all the convenience of a park (complete with restroom facilities) and the beach. Fishermen are abundant, boating opportunities abound. Great place to spend time basking in the sun at the foot of the famed Chesapeake Bay Bridge.

We spent an entire day from 8:30 - 6 at the beach. It cost $5 per person or buy a yearly pass for $75 for up to 10 people in your car. It was a great day. There are lifeguards on the beach during the summer and lots of room to spread out. There are grills and picnic tables, snack... More

Wear water shoes, & love life! Great place; a quasi beach for when the three hour ride to Ocean City is just too far. The water "funkifies" my hair, but who cares! Seriously, my only complaints: 1) if you forget water shoes, you will not have a nice time; owwww! 2) We went Mother's Day- had a blast- but had... More

I love the fact that the park already has provisions for grilling and a beach nearby if you want to be in or near water. Great to be near a decent US beach. Park grounds are well kept and an abundance of trees for shade. Great for a picnic or fa last minute family outing.

I recommend visiting here for the annual Maryland Seafood Festival (you'll need to purchase tickets), which has a fun atmosphere with a surprisingly wide variety of vendors, not simply seafood. However, I would discourage people from ever setting foot in the water - I have a friend who is a water quality specialist who tests water throughout Maryland, and the... More

Perfect "beach trip" for families with small children. The water is calm and the beach perfect for sand castles. Snack bar and bathroom close to the beach. Beautiful views of the Chesapeake Bay, sailboats, and Bay Bridge. Go during the week or arrive early on weekends to avoid the big crowds.

If you wan't a quick retreat to the beach from either DC or Baltimore this is probably the only sandy beach around. It has a beautiful view of the Bay bridge, an ample opportunity for BBQ and fishing, as well as sunbathing. This is about sums up positive parts of it. Here's what I didn't quite like about it.
