This is a nice little beach park that typifies the kind of small New England beach that families have gone to for the day or week for decades. The facilities are adequate but not spectacular, and it can be crowded so going early in the...More

Great beach for families, can be crowded on a hot day. $15 to park and nice clean bathrooms and store that has pizza, hot dogs, ice cream, etc. for sale. The view is spectacular, we love visiting here.

We come to this beach regularly since around 2006. It never disappoints. Summers it is staffed with lifeguards and a small shop for incidental needs. There is usually parking if you come during the week, free for veterans with ID! Depending on the weather and...More
