“Too Crowded for me!”
Reviewed May 26, 2012

Waves are usually rough... Kids like it for body surfing. The beach gets sooooo crowded. You have people with their towels right up next to you. Not my favorite. Linda from Ligonier, Pa.

“Walk a Bit For Solitude”
Reviewed May 22, 2012 via mobile

We used our bus pass to head down to South Beach since we heard it was really quiet that day, which was surprising since it was a warm sunny day. The beach is really long, but everyone is sort of bunched around the Right Side and Left Side parking lots/Bus stops, so a 10 minute walk along the beach found complete solitude. Looks like you could walk for a long way . Sand is pretty good and relatively clean. The dunes are protected, but are interesting, along with the estuary behind the dunes. Fortunately, the beach isn't lined with expensive homes like so much of the Cape. The homes are back behind the estuary, so there is a real sense of peace and quiet. Definitely a great place to take a break from the villages.

“Long beach”
Reviewed April 24, 2012

We biked past most of the beach. It is very kid friendly and clean. Good biking route along the beach.

“How far do you need to go to find a place to sit?”
Reviewed March 29, 2012

Very crowded full of young kids...high school and college. Maybe us older types want more serenity and less tumalt. Hard to find parking and long walk from when you do.
The sea is great and it is a large beach.

“Jaws Redux”
Reviewed February 11, 2012

We went to South Beach were many of the Jaws scenes were filmed. It was an amazing experience to look around and see the "sets" live! The beach itself is really nice, waves were OK. Parking on the street wasn't so difficult to find, even though it was 4th of July weekend...
