“Beautiful Beach”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

We have been coming to this beach for over 30 years. It's great for families with young children as there is a long, wet area before you would get into the actual water/tide. A lot of place for the little ones to play. Not as fun for older kids who want waves or surf.

“Quiet and serene”
Reviewed August 12, 2013 via mobile

I love going to Skaket Beach in the evening. It is a peaceful end to a relaxing day. Make sure to bring bug spray.

Nice quiet beach. Great sunset. Free parking after 4:30. Water is shallow for a great distance from the shore.

“Magnificent sunsets”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Skaket Beach is a family-friendly bay beach with little undertow, making it an ideal place for small children. Skaket is also a prime spot for viewing the sunset. A parking sticker is required between Memorial Day and Labor Day.

“Perfect Beach for Kids”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Skaket Beach is a wonderful beach for small kids, particularly at low tide. Walking in the shallows reveals hermit crabs, razor clams, mussels, minnows, fiddler crabs, and a few larger crabs. Give a kid a net and let them explore.

It is also a wonderful place to watch sunsets. We ran down there all year around.
