It's long, so there's lots of area to spread out. There's a nice walking/jogging trail that runs along the beach. There's picnic tables and plenty of trees for shade. Sometimes there's good waves for playing in. Very close to a family members house, so we enjoy visiting the beach when we come to see them.

spend an hour, spend a full day - there is plenty to do here at the best beach in Ohio. Located east of Cleveland about a 30 minute drive, this beach is huge, and offers trails into nature areas, a paved path for walking, huge beaches for kite flying, and great access to Lake Erie. I particularly enjoy it in... More

Are you looking for a great place to have a beautiful, beach-front picnic? You can never go wrong when the weather's nice at Headland's Beach! There are lots of trails and this is an awesome place to collect sea-glass. The park has a couple pavilions you can rent really inexpensively. The pavilions have nice, large, steel grills for you to... More

I lived within a few miles of Lake Erie all my life and always headed to Mentor Headlands each weekend as a child, then with my friends as a teenager, now with my husband watching beautiful sunsets. The beach is clean white sand. Mentor had a beach fest the past 2 years which is fun for the family, with lots... More

My wife and I spent a day on the beach. We are only an hour drive away. The beach is pure white sand. This make the sand feel very hot. My wife went searching for beach glass. I tried to find shade on the beach. Take an umbrella for shade. No coconut trees to hide under. The grounds are kept... More

We enjoyed our visit to this beach. It was our first trip here and we were not disappointed. It really was hard to believe this was Lake Erie and we were only 2 hours from home! The gravel in the sand is a little hard on the feet, but that is to be expected for a lake beach. It makes... More
