We camped at Winter Island State Park and our campsite overlooked this beautiful beach. It is a very clean, spacious beach.

This beach is too busy with camper-van owners, whose vehicles also dominate the green space on Winter Island. Try Dead Horse Beach or Forest River Park instead.

Amazing family friendly beach! It is so clean and well kept up. An awesome place to bring young children, since it is such a small spot, they can have so much room to play.

The beach is a bunch of rocks. Nice to sit and relax looking out over the water. $15.00 fee to park, a bit steep.

Saw this as part of our Salem Trolley Tour. I guess there are only two Waikiki beaches in the world and now I can say that I've been to both. Interesting while exploring Salem's naval history.

It is easily accessible from the free parking readily available on Winter Island close to the covered pavilion and free restrooms. Small secluded with a personal feeling to it. A place to be left alone and loof at the water.

You can't imagine you are in Hawaii but it is a great beach near a camp ground. Not large but great views.

We didn't get to stay very long, but it looked like a nice little beach. If you were staying in Salem and wanted something different to do besides visiting witch related places, this would be worth consideration. It's not very big, but there's a sandy...More
