“Some Of The Softest Sand Underfoot In The World!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

This beach can get pretty crowded, sand bars appear from time to time to give you safe swimming, and if you're lucky, as we have been, you'll see dolphins cavorting offshore/ Other than these facts, the title says the most important part of all.

“Cute little beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

Compare to Jones beach, this beach has a very very short walk from parking lot. On a good day it get crowded but so does Jones. If you have kids, this is a very good beach since you don't have to drag everything walking on sand for half a mile before you see water. We love coming here. We found out you can see a lot of baby clams and they are so cute! The wash off station is nice as well.

“Nice Long Island Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

Always nice here in the summer although weekends can be extremely crowded. Can always go sit near the surfing area but you cant swim there without a board. Also, a little pricey for non-residents.

“Too crowded for a local beach!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2012

I guess it's good if you don't live there! There's parking and a concession stand, but it's too crowded. To me it's just like Coney Island. If that's what you're looking for then you'll love it! I like a more quiet beach that you don't have to think about a person putting their towel on top of yours!

“nice little beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2012

Nice short walk to the beach, however parking can be hard on the weekends. Lots get filled up quickly but you could always find parking across the street on the sidestreets and its free!!
