“Dogs are allowed after 5 PM!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

Beach is ok, though I favored other beaches in MV (especially Aquinnah). What made this beach special to me is the ability to bring dogs after 5 pm!

“Great beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

I loved the beach. It has a 4 mile long with a walking path
I didn't like the fact that the beach was broken up by some rocky shore line so you couldn't walk the distance on the beach.

“Disgusting!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

This is probably the worst beach I have ever been on anywhere!

Signs saying no dogs were obviously ignored on a regular basis the evidence was clear to see and we saw several people walking their dogs on the beach too.

There was litter everywhere which I have to say was unusual in my experience for a beach in USA.

The sea wall WAS COVERED IN SPRAY PAINT that is in the bits that were still standing.

Well worth avoiding

Calm clean waters, great for the whole family. Our teens jumped off the bridge where Jaws was filmed. Very cool.

“Nice beach, a bit rocky”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

Plenty of room to choose your spot, but it attracts lots and lots of people each day. Get here early in the morning (before 10 or so and you're likely to have most of the beach to yourself - at least for a few minutes. The shoreline was a bit rocky, but tolerable.
