Te beach is small but nice. Contrary to other reviews it was clean. Methinks those flat landers are spoiled by New England's clean beaches- Stay outta New Jersey.

Small but good for a short stay for the day if you are by an airport hotel - little too much seaweed

Lovely beach, great atmosphere during summer, always seems to be something going on. Car shows on Tues evenings. Beautiful sunset around 7/7.30pm in June. Fab playground for children. Great way to spend time.

Nice proximity to the beach, affordable, great service BUT...if you've had seafood elsewhere in NE this one is not in the same league. The seafood platter is a meal for two but the whole-belly clams are small, the scallops are those less expensive bay scallops (not the sea scallops) and the fish is cod and not the more flavorful haddock....

Local bay (Salt water, no surf) beach with no fees and free parking. Several good places to eat or purchase and picnic right on the water. Nice playground, and areas to take and walk a dog. That being said, we occasionally go off season or early in the day to walk the beach or enjoy a cup of coffee -... More
