Great place to throw a frisbee and read a book. The water on the beach was clean, clear and warm. We never wanted to leave either place.

The water was clean, calm and warm. The noise from the traffic behind the beach detracted from the relaxation at times. The only unfortunate situation was the lack of any facilities, as far as we could see. If our hotel was not 1 minute waking distance, it would have been difficult to stay there very long.

This beach is very easy to get to and is a nice, easy to get to beach! There is plenty of soft sand and it is very accessible to walk, ride a bike or catch the bus over to the beach. Great views and the sunsets are amazing!

The beach is easy to access, has gentle surf and the water is warmer than the south beaches, for example. Not very windy, pleasant, the best!

Beautiful, sun sand and people. You can see what draws people to this beautiful part of the Atlantic seaboard. Miles of sand and you can sit and watch the ferry come and go.

Nice beach. Nice view. In June the water is still a bit too cold for much. I strolled along the top edge of the ledge to get down to the sandy area.

Beach is ok, though I favored other beaches in MV (especially Aquinnah). What made this beach special to me is the ability to bring dogs after 5 pm!

I loved the beach. It has a 4 mile long with a walking path I didn't like the fact that the beach was broken up by some rocky shore line so you couldn't walk the distance on the beach.

This is probably the worst beach I have ever been on anywhere! Signs saying no dogs were obviously ignored on a regular basis the evidence was clear to see and we saw several people walking their dogs on the beach too. There was litter everywhere which I have to say was unusual in my experience for a beach in USA.... More

Calm clean waters, great for the whole family. Our teens jumped off the bridge where Jaws was filmed. Very cool.
