The beach was nice, not crowded good area HOWEVER they could have had a sign about the plethora of bugs in the water. I go out and was covered in tiny bugs... nasty!!! 90% of the time spent there was washing bugs off me and out of my suit. Florida beaches have signs to keep beach goers updated on less!... More

We usually go to Easton's Beach in the spring or after Labor Day as the crowds are gone. The carousal is interesting.

This beach is undeniably beautiful, just don't swim! There is an excessive amount of seaweed and there are bugs everywhere in there. When I got out, I had bugs all over me, in my swimsuit, everywhere! In addition to the small ones that live in the seaweed, there were also some bigger, squirmy bugs that resemble slimy centipedes. I will... More

The beach wasn't crowded which is a plus. The weather was not hot enough for me to go swimming. Though, I enjoyed relaxing on sand at this beach.

The beach is clean and great for kids! It's not the most beautiful beach - red water looks a bit muddy and there is a little smell but if u had little kids who don't mind that sort of thing it's perfect..

We visited this beach last week. We were pleasantly surprised that it wasn`t packed. Nice large beach with some good waves for those who like to boogie board. Only downside - $10 parking and red algae!

Convenient parking, rest rooms, umbrella rentals, nice clean sand, plenty of lifeguards, not too crowded, great beach! Only negative the day we went was a lot of red seaweed that was a bit unpleasant to wade through. But we discovered it was mostly on one end of the beach. One could walk to the other end and find much cleaner... More

Clean Beach. Great Snack Bar, including twin Lobster Rolls - CHEAP. Surf is pretty good at one end. Metered parking or Paid parking lot parking.

The beach is nice to look at from a distance. There is a strong 'rotten egg' smell that makes it unpleasant if there is not a strong breeze. There is plenty of parking and showers/ rest rooms. Parking is $10 weekdays. Nice beach to drive past on your way to 2nd beach.

We drove about an hour and a half to get to 1st beach. The beach was plagued by tons of red seaweed. It was pretty gross looking. My husband refused to go in the water entirely. My kids went in a little, but the seaweed clung to them when they came out. The beach didn't smell great (not sure if... More
