Fished there recently in the wee hours, followed by some morning relaxation time. Although the facilities were all closed up, this could not be a more perfect beach, especially for families.

There are much better beaches in Falmouth. This beach is just ok, overcrowded and dirty with trash spilling at the end of the day. Seagulls are aggressive, lot of small bugs, and a lot of seaweed. Water can be murky but warm.
