Although I don't believe we should have to pay to get on a beach unfortunately we do and it's not cheap. This beach is 9.00 each during the week and they charge kids over 11 as adults. A bit pricey. It is clean and close to amusements so it's a nice place to go with your family. Just remember to... More

I used to spend a LOT of time at this beach when I was younger (back in the 1980's when they didn't charge to get on the beach!). It still has that quaint, family friendly feel to it, and while it might cost more nowadays, it is still just as charming as ever. Great job by the city and the... More

I often visit this beach in the summer and just visited yesterday. Therefore I thought it would be a perfect time to write a review. I always sit u der the palm trees by Jenkinson's. I sit here because it is a perfect view of the ocean, easy access to restroom facilities, easy access to get drinks/foods, and I get... More

My family and I love this beach. We come here every summer. The beach is always clean and its nice to have the convenience of the boardwalk for a quick bite to eat.

Beach is clean, life guards were great when my daughter got injured, most hotels offer discount passes to get on the beach and if you are not staying for the entire day and just want to walk on the beach you don't have to pay.

So nice! Nice beach, nice waves, nice people, nice town, sketchy and pricy carnival scene, though...way overpriced and questionably safe policies for rides! One minute they let your little kids ride and the next minute they don't. Was it safe the first time?

This is a small beach with life guards from 9-5. There is a fee for the beach and also beach badges. You can spend the day on the beach and still keep your spot on the beach and go up on the boardwalk. There are also showers/changing facilities.

Read other reviews saying the sand was rocky. Some areas are smooth and others have sea shells and bits of coral mixed. Large beach in length and width which is broken into a mix of public and private. You will need to buy beach tags, daily or seasonal, to get on the beach. They are only good for that specific...
