Beautiful clean beach that we especially enjoy off season. Some days you’ll see seals and sand pipers. Beautiful waves and breezy!

We've been here in October, but it must be a lovely beach in the summer months. It's great for long walks and the view of the ocean is very rewarding and relaxing.

No sand bar. Dangerous undertow. Tons of seaweed and occasional seal. Beautiful and uncrowded as long as you don't need to swim. Sometimes good fishing

Full of red sea weed as it always is. So easy to get to if you are staying in Sconset, but there are much nice beaches to go to.

This beach is so beautiful, so peaceful, and even during peak season in August was very empty mostly. We had a picnic lunch here and saw the seals swimming. It was very very cool watching them swim so close to shore. The views from the...More
