I've read a lot of reviews that comment on the tide. Let me say I don't see the issue. This is one of the longest beaches I've been to. Yes the beach narrows on high tide, but there is tons of room to stay dry by just walking about 500 metres north. Our kids loved it. Played in the waves... More

At low tide the beach is wide but it virtually disappears when the tide comes in (this happens quickly). Lifeguards actually announced that the ride was coming in. If you walk a little north there is more sand but everyone seems to congregate near the parking lot area. Water is numbingly cold. My feet actually hurt from standing in it.... More

Watch the tide chart to plan your beach time. When it's high tide, the beach pretty much vanishes. It is a very gradual slope, which accounts for the strong effects of the tide.

The beach itself was lovely. The water was chilly I will not lie, but once you got used to it, it was a refreshing swim. The beach got very very crowded and at high ride there was little to no beach. All in all it makes for a fun day!

It's a beautiful long sandy beach, best to arrive just after high tide. Bring beach chairs as the sand will be wet from the tide. You can walk for miles and get away from the crowd or join the crown and enjoy

The beach was clean and big with very clear water. I haven't seen water this clear in the USA in a very long time. Just be prepared....the water can be a bit brisk!

My friends and I walked to this beach while staying in town. We spent half the day there and it was beautifully maintained and very relaxing. Loved it and I am not much of a beach person.

This part of the world has huge differences between low and high tides. At high tide a large part (most) of the Main beach is under water - make sure you are aware of the high tide times and arrive at the beach accordingly. Clean area, snack bar and beach shop are right at the beach. Parking was $25 for... More

Long beach, nice sand, clean. Lifeguard stations and snack shacks nearby. Crowd is largely middle-to-upper class; not any mischief like you can find at Old Orchard Beach.

$25 dollars for parking on a Monday! Only one building of rest rooms for a very large beach?! I much prefer the beaches of New Hampshire.
