Wow, what a lovely beach! Look for the green flags as you need to be between them to swim while life guards are on duty. The beach is so pretty. Well kept / clean.

Great beach! Lots of space to spread out during the week. The only problem is that there are no public restrooms close by!

Been coming to Ship Bottom the last 4 years and we love our 11th street spot. Other friends complain about the biting flies but we never have issue. Beaches are clean and the water is amazing.

Nice beaches if you want to be close to the bridge for easy on and off accessibility. Which is why they get very crowded. Head north or south a bit more and you'll see that the crowds thin out.

My family and i had an awesome time in ship bottom. It's a great place to go that isn't so close around the chaos of fantasy island and Bayville. And there is still plenty to do! There is an amazing little beach bay!

Ship Bottom was beautiful. Gorgeous beach, very family oriented and just pretty. Great place to escape, with so many eateries and shops to keep you busy. Really enjoyed it.

We spent most of our vacation on this beach..which we loved. Great waves for jumping, boogie boards and even surfing. One thing to note - watch the flags...when you get a land breeze, there are bad flies. Ocean breeze and you are golden. If you can determine the breeze BEFORE you get to the beach, you will be happier.
