“Wouldn't recommend”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Wouldn't recommend it. Beach is small. Gets crowded pretty quickly. Water is warmer than Sand beach. If you have been to Sand Beach, not worth spending your time here.

Water is warmer than sand beach- hiked the beech cliff trail via Canada cliffs on way down then up to the summit of beech trail which was very strenuous and steep!

“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!
