Clean, with bathroom, showers and concession stand with decent. The beach club is pretty good and drinks are fairly priced. Includes live music as we'll all day. Bad odor coming from the trash dumpster on the beach which the wind blows your direction. Not sure if that is always there or not

Clean, with bathroom, showers and concession stand with decent food. Waves good for kids to boogie board! Tip, don't stop at first area of beach, it is where the locals go and not much going on. Drive further down near concessions and bathrooms/showers. Worth the $20 parking fee

We love the length... a good walk.....We drive down before and after the parking charges go into effect... and ride bikes down late afternoon. In the winter Shell hunting is fun. We ride horses here Oct-November...

Pretty beach with lots of sand and enough place for everybody. Looked clean and was well guarded. Shower facilities were good and parking places were available - we arrived at 4.30 pm and they were even free. The scenery is very nice with st Georges School overlooking the beach.

We visited on a Saturday and the line to get in was long but worth it. There was a large area of the beach covered in red tide so we chose a spot in the more crowded section without any of that stinky red stuff around. The water is warm and clean. The shack selling food was gross and overpriced... More

Appeared popular but not too crowded to make it enjoyable. Got some great photos for instagram! Had bathroom facilities and a concession stand as well.

Pretty beach, clean and sandy with a good view, seemed to be enough parking, easy to find. BUT.......Not sure if this is a usual problem but there was a horrible smell close to the waters' edge and over by the rock ledges...we could not stay near the water. Smell diminished as you walked away from waters' edge.

Nice soft sand, little red tide only in certain spots, clean restrooms and plenty of beach to walk up and down. Worth the price. Hint if traveling from out of town pick you plates wisely to get a residence fee vs non.

Midweek parking Thurs and Fri, $10/day, we got there at 11am and parked directly across from the particular dune crossing we wanted. Concession stand, surfing (and rentals) near north end of the beach. Clean bathrooms/bathhouse. Porta potties at each dune crossing. Clean and well maintained by consciencious staff. The sand is the softest you'll find, and I've been on beaches... More
