The beach was really overcrowded. The food sold was over priced garbage. Bring your own food!! There are rentals and bathrooms...the upsides.

Beautiful soft sand beach. Bathrooms and food available. The sand gets hot on the path to the beach. A wooden path would be nice to access the beach.

You can surf, fish or just run your toes through the soft sand. It is not far from town and you can take the bus or rent a bike and ride all the way there.

Beach was nice although there was a big drop off from shore to water. Waves were also really big. Not a beach for little kids. But there are bathrooms, outdoor showers and a food stand. Forgot a boogie board and the chef at the food stand lent us his. Nice! Lots of activity and very pretty.

We didn't have time to grab sandwiches before heading to Surfside but the snack bar is worth a visit. Not overly priced, it offers a variety of options from burgers to grilled cheese sandwiches. Bring cash though since the ATM wasn't working this weekend.

What an unbelievably beautiful beach. The waves are awesome and the frozen lemonade rules! Shells were massive!

Surfside is great, especially for kids 7 and older who want to boogie board. There is a very long walk from parking lot to beach which is a turn off for some and definitely not wheelchair friendly. Nice to have toilets and food available though.

The waves are very strong and great for playing in but not for swimming. The water is cold. Quite different from the beaches on the other side of the island.

We visited in the off season so there weren't any other people on the beach which was great, but I'm assuming in the summer this is a very popular beach. Very pretty and a very large beach.
