We would go to Mentor Headlands a lot, but was told to try this place out. This definitely has become our new place! It's a small beach, but very well kept. They have playgrounds, volleyball court, kayak rentals, etc there for different types of entertainment....More

This is a small beach, very well maintained. If you go after 9am it costs a few bucks per car(not sure how much, we were there early). There is plenty of parking. There are restrooms and showers and also an area that rents paddle boards...More

With the walkway out on the Lake, kids play area, lots of sand, rental of the boats. Places to sit - just enjoy ! Just listen to the waves come in. Serenity and Fun - depending on why you are going to the beach.

A guarded harbor, great park staff and plenty of aquatic programs and rentals make this local the perfect family friendly spot on Lake Erie...a local lighthouse is 500 yards away and local waterfront fish houses beckon

Very well kept park with restrooms and easy access sidewalks. Good views of Lake Erie. A walk out on the breakwater will get you closer to the lighthouse in the Lake.

The name is almost bigger than the beach. Parking is $3 for non residents but don't try to be cheap and avoid the fee. High Street is posted No Beach Parking and you will be towed. Also you have to walk back up the hill...More

I remember coming out to Fairport as a child to fish and go to the beach. Much to my surprise when I returned to place has made a magnificent change.. It's beautiful, and so clean. Great place to bring the whole family.

We absolutely love this beach. It is clean. Parkin is close to the beach and the beach is small enough to keep track of the children. The swimming area is also small enough that the lifeguards are able to actually see what is going on....More

The beach is open all year. Not sure if there will be lifeguards on duty after Labor Day.
