the kids especially love it at low tide. It seems you can walk out for miles! The beach is small, but there is a snack bar.

Our son and grandchildren had a wonderful visit to Harvey's Beach. It is a bit out of the way, but well worth the effort to get there. It is quiet and well-maintained.

We just love this beach. It's a great place put just put your feet in the water and shallow enough for small children to have a great time. It is however easy to miss the parking lot completely, so do watch for the sighn.

We like to go to the beach after 5pm when many people have left. We find this beach to be quiet and easy to stroll along the water's edge, especially when the sun is setting - it is incredibly awesome!

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.

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.
