We love to come to Rick Seltzer Park. Easy beach access with plenty of parking. Restrooms and outdoor showers to rinse off the sand. Two great restaurants right across the street for lunch or brunch: Finns Island Grub and Liza's Kitchen

We stayed in a house across the street from this park. Convenient area, well kept restrooms, showers to rinse yourself off, and several lifeguards in the area. Plenty of parking if you're driving to the beach. Great place to use to access the beach!

While it appears to be a nice beach entrance for families, pets are not even welcome on the deck area so we do not go to this park.

We appreciated this park because we could use the restrooms which were fairly clean and wash off our feet before heading to the car. It's nice that this facility was super busy. Parking lot is not paved.
