Day Trip

I will be visiting the area in August and looking for the best Public Beach Access. I've researched and found several located along the Lumina Ave stretch as well as Salisbury St. Looking for cleanliness and not to crowded.

They are all reasonably clean and all are crowded. Get there early to get a seat ( or parking place) I would try to find one close to town just to be able to take a break.

Thanks Jeem for the information. When you in town do you mean the Lumina Ave access opposed to Salisbury...

During the weekdays, especially in the mornings it is not normally that crowded. The beach fills up in the after noon. I would suggest getting to the access earlier and staking out your parking spot as wel as your spot on the beach, the futher away you get from Johnny Mercers Pier the less crowded it becomes. Also the later in August that you visit you are more likely to not have as many people. I hope this helps!
