I grew up coming to Old Silver beach, and now that I'm an adult still love coming here! The water is calm and clean (usually), and parking is reasonable. However, once the lot is full, goold luck finding parking nearby! Highly recommend coming early.

There is a lot to love about the beach. Water, views, people, walking. The water tends to be on the cool side, so be aware.
