Once again a local spot that seems to not attract tourists. We enjoyed the peaceful walk on the beach and exploring the old buildings (which are creepy from the outside). A rainstorm interrupted our visit, looking forward to going back again to continue exploring.

Love this beach in the springtime. Visited on a warm 80 degree day in April. We walked along the beach and one of the public piers. Some people were even in the water. Not crowded.

We love this beach! It is clean, has free parking, and way less crowded than the major beaches nearby. There is no boardwalk but food trucks and ice cream trucks often come by. This beach is by far the best one in the area.

Well, Buckroe is for you. A quiet place with calm water and nice facilities, Buckroe holds an important place in local African American history. It was the location of a hotel friendly to African American performers like Louis Armstrong and many others. The current day...More
