Beautiful place for a stroll along the Chesapeake Bay. Good bird and critter watching. Also used by a lot of folks for fishing from the beach.

This is not a big place, but it is lovely for a stroll down to the calm small beach and back. There is also a Cross Island trail that had a lot of runners and bikers on it which looked like fun. We'll visit again....More

This was a beautiful little gem that we found. Great walking trails and a lovely beach right on the Chesapeake. Take some time to explore the park. Beautiful flowers, too.

I stumbled on this park on a bike ride and since it has become a great place to escape to. Very peaceful views, and a generally quiet and clean.

We are amazed by this wonderful hidden beach next to the trails. Almost don't want to write a review for fear that more people will arrive... Great open water swimming. Skinny beach, and no fresh water showers.

We spent two wonderful hours walking on the Terrapin trails through woods and roads. The trails were flat enough so we could jog on the roads, which were clearly marked. And It was nice to walk along the beach and NOT see any vendors. As...More

We visited Terrapin Nature Park last summer and were very disappointed with the trash and lack of care the visitors took in this local beach.

Terrapin is a great natural area, you will have to walk about a half mile to get to the beach. You may also want to check out Mattapeake beach on route 8 south of route 50. Both will offer great backdrops for family pics. If... More

I think technically it's an on-leash beach but it's pretty quiet during the weekdays. If you google Queen Anne Dog Beach you'll find information on Matapeake. Matapeake is certainly an off-leash dog beach. Good luck!
