“Don't use this beach”
Reviewed June 19, 2012

Willard Beach uses the same waters frequently traveled by ships in and out of the nearby harbor. Hence, you really don't want to swim in such waters. In fact, whatever these ships do leave behind, also travels as far as Freeport's beach areas. I would not recommend this beach except for sunbathing--and, only if you don't have a better place to go.

“neighborhood beach”
Reviewed May 1, 2012

Willard is a neighborhood and a beach. The area is often likened to Martha's Vineyard. It a small beach but remarkable close to the city and handy for a walk or picnic on a pleasant summer day. There are public bathrooms, a parking lot and a snack shop.

“Great family spot”
Reviewed August 16, 2011

A great laid-back community beach. It's a local spot and not aimed at tourists. No trinket vendors, no t-shirts, etc. Just a great view, gradual sloping entry perfect for young kids, great bay views. A place to slow down and enjoy the beauty!
