Especially great for families with small children. Small crowds make it easy to keep a close eye on your children. Children also enjoy watching the trains go by. Very convenient new beach house with showers & restrooms. Will be even nicer when boardwalk is completed.

Plenty of room and wonderful view. We wished the boardwalk was open, but with the new train bridge construction its understandable.

Good Parking, clean rest rooms, areas for walking. Close to an ice cream shop. The views are nice aside from Milestone. Usually quiet, we go in the late afternoon for a picnic dinner. I enjoy watching young families with little ones discovering birds and shells for the first time.

We were there on a very hot Saturday... not crowded at all. Had a nice walking trail to the top of a hill. Nothing fancy, just a quiet clean beach.
