Very peaceful, serene setting. Calm and relaxing. Gentle current, loads of sea life. Perfect for families.

“Peaceful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

We got here about 7am with our dogs and it was perfectly empty and still. I had my coffee while we all walked the beautiful beach and watched the sun coming up. Absolutely beautiful. No one gets up here until 9! It did seem a bit more crowded later in the afternoon. There's no ocean, just a bay, but it was wonderful.

“Great beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

The sand is soft and white. The water is calm and shallow. Great for small children. Beautiful place to watch a sunset

“You cannot ask for more from a public beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

The water is clear, the beach nearly empty and there are no-few jetskis (a big no-no in these parts.) You have to walk nearly a quarter mile to get to mid-waist water depth so that alone makes it fun for kids and grown-ups. No lifeguards. Salt bay water.
