Water is warmer than sand beach- hiked the beech cliff trail via Canada cliffs on way down then up to the summit of beech trail which was very strenuous and steep!

The views are spectacular. It is fantastic for kids because the water is not very deep. It also is a nice place to swim versus the cold Atlantic Ocean which to many may be a bit too cold.

This is one of my favorite spots on the island. There are bathrooms, changing rooms and a large sand beach. My son and husband love the Beach Cliffs trail which connects to Beach Mt. The water is good for swimming even in early fall.

Great for families! The water is a little cold and it can get crowded, but the view is unforgettable! It is absolutely superior. There is a wonderful hike above it and the beach and utilities are fair. Once again I truly recommend this to large parties!

My family and I really enjoy this beach and try to go every year. The changing areas and bathrooms are clean and well maintained. There is a very short walk to the beach from the parking area. There is some grassy areas to sit, and then sand right up to the water. The water is very clear and clean. There was a lifeguard on duty while we were there. The swim area does not drop off quickly which is nice for children. Beautiful view!
