Wonderfull little beach in Bellevue. Probably the best in the area unless you go all the way to Seattle. There are lifeguards on duty, bathrooms, a nice sand beach and a dock. Plus the view from the beach is very nice.

This is a very small park that winds down to a small beach & swimming area. It is very secluded and can be quiet if you go late in the afternoon.

south of off Main Street to find Chism Beach park. I spent 15 years lifeguarding here. You will love it. Great swimming area, picnic areas, children play area. A beautiful place to visit any time of the year.
