No floatables allowed. If you don't mind alot seaweed wrapping around your feet in the water. Some people were in the water but most were not. This was a really great, sunny and very warm day.

Very nice family beach area. Calm waters, no waves, great for little kids. Walk to the left and can take snapshots of Stage Harbor Light. Lifeguards very friendly. Bathrooms were clean, too.

It was the highlight of our vacation. We enjoyed a early evening walk on the dunes on Harding Beach.
