Off the beaten path. Iggys attracts a lot of people, but you can go just for the beach. Quiet. Free parking. We like to eat at Top of The Bay instead.

I've always liked Oakland Beach, great smells, great restaurants, boating, walking on the boardwalk, great calm beach, great play scape, lots of free parking, lots of lawn to play on or picnic, ice cream, doughboys and lots of food choices. The one thing that bothers me about this area are the kind of people who come to hang out. There... More

The beach is a little rocky - Scarborough beach is sandier. But the proximity to Iggy's is nice and the water is really shallow so it is a great spot to swim.

Skip the beach and just come down for dinner and the sunset. The beach is average at best, parking is limited and the traffic is awful on a busy day. Just come down here for dinner at the end of the day and skip hanging out on the beach. There are two good options - Iggy's Doughboys has a good... More

Went there for lunch. Had clamcakes , stuffies, shrimp salad, lobster bisque, a hamburger, and ended with an order of doughboys. Everything was excellent.

Oakland beach is a neighborhood beach that attracts some rough people and is very crowded on the weekends. We saw people actually dumping their trash onto the beach before they left. Beach is rocky and water is cold (as is all the water in New England). The restaurants there, however, are nice and upscale, with one having a deck bar... More

Quaint beach, calm water, warm breeze, gorgeous view and relaxing atmosphere. Free parking, free beach entrance, playground for kids and a frozen lemonade truck. Walking distance to 2 restaurants. Downside - don't expect to swim here. There are nearby septic that get released causing the water to test high for bacteria.

We never mind the long line when you know your going to enjoy what's cooking... Don't be discourage by the long line. The food is amazing and the line for the most part moves pretty quickly.
