Parking is very close to the beach which is convenient. It invites groups with lots of beach paraphernalia and children. Fairly crowed on hot summer days. Nice pier that goes from the beach side boardwalk into the Sound a hundred yards or so. People fish from the end of the pier and it has a nice panoramic view of the Sound and the shoreline.
The water depth here compared to Silver Sands has a much steeper slope. It's waist deep a few yard offshore, and over your head not much farther out. Nice place to swim and people are friendly.
