great public beach

Smith Point is a great Public beach. At night enjoy great local music, cocktails and dance. Its clean, well potroled by rangers. Great fun worth the ride up William Floyd

15$ to park. Incredibly ridiculous-Disney charges less for parking!! Not worth the money. Stick with fire island! Will never return here.

I've camped out here a few times and look forward to another run soon. There are many sites where you have a view of the beach with the waves rolling in. I never tried for those and last week some of those sites were unoccupied. I was surprised. It's still early in the season but, wow! That was spectacular. Very... More

The incident is chronicled in online videos, pictures, news stories and email accounts. It's a truly humble testament to remembering the ill-fated airline travelers crossing the Atlantic for all different reasons. Most impressive is the international array of citizen-represented flags with the ocean waves heard in the background.

Smith Point Beach is amazing!!! Every year I purchase a parking pass and I am there quite often. The beach is beautiful. There is not a long walk from the parking lot to the sand. The lifeguards do an outstanding job protecting everyone. In addition to the ocean, The Beach Hut sells food, drink and spirits. The Mudslides are to... More

Great beach and boardwalk with facilities for summer fun for all ages. Great night spot for everyone to enjoy with live music and good food at reasonable prices. Free parking for seniors during the week and $5 per car with the pass.

We go to this beach every time we visit family. This is a great little beach in an unbelievable location. Just minutes off the highway, you basking in the sun with a cool one in you hand from the Beach Hut. The live entertainment all afternoon and evening can't be beat. If you can't afford a ticket to paradise, just... More

The beach is very clean. Since hurricane sandy the shoreline is closer. The beach was cleaned up and sand was added. They did a great job of revitalizing the beach.

Wow the beach has changed over the years but one thing has always remained the same is just how clean and nice it is. It is never over crowded and is just a great place to bring the family or go take a nice walk on the shore.
