A small beach along withy boat launch. nice views of the Bay Bridge.. Great for sunrises but not so much for sunsets. Not the best water to swim in but the chance of a shark is very low:)

I recommend to go between April and May when it's not too cold and crowded. Sandy point is a lovely place to lye down in the sand and just relax or even go a dive in the sea. I highly recommend it.

Very nice park for enjoying a day on the water and out in the sunshine. Nice beach area and plenty of room for a beautiful day in April, however I am sure it gets crowded later in summer. Nice picnic area and nice bathrooms.

A great spot that provides the single best photo opportunity of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge. Quiet off-season, it can get very crowded doing the Summer.

We went during the off season (no way we were getting in the water in February!) but the whole area was just beautiful. We plan on coming back closer to summer so we can rent a rowboat and go out on the water, maybe even...More

Took my granddaughters there over a weekend in May, we had a wonderful time, the water was not that deep that the 9 yr. old could not swim. No waves and they just loved that. Cant wait to visit again this summer.

We go several times a week all summer long and have never had stained feet.....
Hi! Where did you park and which part of the beach would be best? Taking my little kids there tomorrow an end of summer beach day and trying to iron out details. Thanks!
