Nice rocky beach for long walks. The views of Mt Rainier were wonderful and there are picnic areas. Easy to get in and out of the parking area.

very nice park. A little windy when we first arrived. had to sit in the car to eat our lunch. The sun came out and the wind died down.we walked on the beach for about 2 miles. The dead Dungeness crabs were astounding. Wish the were alive. we would have had a feast

Big, expansive sky and sea views of sandy shoreline, Seattle in distance and the Puget Sound waterway filled with sailboats, container ships and cruise liners. A Must Stop in Bainbridge Island!!

We happened to just swing by this beach on the way home and took a nice little walk in the sand. We also explored the camping situation which had very nice, clean, private campsites. Definitely a nice place to come back to to beachcomb or have a picnic or maybe camp a night or two.

Spent part of a day on Bainbridge Island and visited this park by way of Geocaching activity. Was surprised at its size - has a lot of facilities. Enjoyed a walk around the beach and search for some caches. Nearby condos have one heck of a nice piece of real estate - and nice park to spend time in!

Very nice stroll on the beach. Was fun to walk on the drift wood. It was very peaceful, probably because it was a week day, late afternoon.

This is my favorite beach on Bainbridge. The light in the afternoon is just amazing. There is nice sand for kids to play in and the view is beautiful. There is also a small playground with swings and slides. I highly recommend this one for a day trip with kids.

No matter when I go this park is quiet and serene. It is a nice place to take a walk and feel like you have your own beach. There are a lot of logs and there is no sand, what you would expect from a PNW beach. The park is free to enter, has some campsites and a nice covered... More

It was the typical Island beach with alot of logs down. The "sand" is small pebbles, not a real walk in the sand type. We went on a chilly, foggy day so it is probably different in the sunshine.
