“Love it but get there early”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

The views are spectacular. It is fantastic for kids because the water is not very deep. It also is a nice place to swim versus the cold Atlantic Ocean which to many may be a bit too cold.

“Beautiful lake with ammenities.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

This is one of my favorite spots on the island. There are bathrooms, changing rooms and a large sand beach. My son and husband love the Beach Cliffs trail which connects to Beach Mt. The water is good for swimming even in early fall.

“Most scenic family lake”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

Great for families! The water is a little cold and it can get crowded, but the view is unforgettable! It is absolutely superior. There is a wonderful hike above it and the beach and utilities are fair. Once again I truly recommend this to large parties!

“Love this beach.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

My family and I really enjoy this beach and try to go every year. The changing areas and bathrooms are clean and well maintained. There is a very short walk to the beach from the parking area. There is some grassy areas to sit, and then sand right up to the water. The water is very clear and clean. There was a lifeguard on duty while we were there. The swim area does not drop off quickly which is nice for children. Beautiful view!

“Water much warmer to swim in than Sand Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

This was a great beach and the water much more "swim" friendly both in temperature and temperment.

Our girls much preferred swimming here than in the ocean and normally they don't care how cold the water is.

Loved the fact that there were flush toilets and seperate changing rooms.
