This beach is in the middle of Phillipsburg in front of the Holland House as well as some other hotels. The beach is kept very clean, and the water is beautiful. There are beach lounges put out by the hotels - free to guests along with towels (at least at the Holland House). People off the ships for the day can rent lounges and towels along with drinks for a fee.
Staff from the hotels keep the beach clean, and ensure a pathway to the water from the beach. Water wears away at the "shelf" to the water and steps are dug to make the step to the wet sand easy.
The town brings in sand to keep the beach perfect. Small swells come in when the ferry or tenders from the ships cone and go.
It's fun to walk along the beach near the water as there are many shells that come in with the tide. We've seen more shells on this beach than on any other we've been to.
A truly lovely spot for a vacation or just a "beach day".
