“Great value for $5”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013 via mobile

It's $5 to get in. What can you complain about. Nice, clean beach, lifeguards, concession stands and a great atmosphere. We liked it better than the free beaches. You also get into the other county owned beaches the same day with your pass.

“Excellent park to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

We went to this park at the height of the summer season. Everything was clean and well maintained. There were people swimming, fishing, flying kites, and just walking along the beach. You have to get there early to get a good parking spot.

“Nice beach to leave the hotels behind!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

Some reviews talked about the beach other places (for free) but we didn't find them. For only $5 entry fee, this place is huge and has all the amenities you need. We went Memorial Weekend and it was crowded but still the beach was clean, lifeguards on duty, and umbrellas everywhere!

Don't plan on "renting" the chairs and umbrellas... $35 for the set! We weren't staying that long so sat on a towel on the sand. It is a great place to get away from the endless string of shops and hotels on the rest of the island.
