Cute small beach. Very crowded especially at high tide. No room to spread out and enjoy. Super fun at low tide, you want walk far out.

Would recommend finding another beach. This one is very small and very rocky. Hard to find a public beach in this area but still worth it to go elsewhere.

Very fun and nice at low tide,especially if you have small children.Can walk way out.Check tide schedules before you go.Wear water shoes as sharp shells,etc.can cut your feet.Swings are there,little slide.High tide is not a very good time to go.

This was our 5 month old baby first time on the beach and it was PERFECT! The beach is so shallow, so many families are around, the waves are not big at all, it was perfect!

This is some kind of bird sanctuary, therefore the beach can't be maintained for us humans. Go to the other town beach. It is bigger and nicer

Found this by accident driving around. Kids had fun at sunset walking so far out . We did not visit during daytime but saw bathrooms and a food truck and plenty of garbage bins.It is a small and cute beach !

It's on Great Hammock Rd. If you hit the beach with parking on both sides of the road, you've passed it. You have to go by a booth to get into the parking lot.
