“The beach is in rough shape!!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

My husband and I decided to go to Salisbury Beach for their famous Christy's Pizza and we tried to walk a portion of the beach!! Due to errosion the beach is in rough shape!!
There was no longer anywhere for us to walk!!
It's a shame what's become of the beach area!!

“Not Your "Average" Beach”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

If you are used to your state beach being a strip of sand next to the road, this beach will work fine for you. If you are expecting the state beach to contain great views plus green space between the beach and the road, this beach will be a disappointment, as it was to us.

“Fantastic weekend”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

Went to Salisbury for a weekend with my husband (no kids no grandkids) and to enjoy all of the music for the Adam Ezra Group Ramble. We enjoyed fantastic weather, vendors were all gracious and welcoming. The beach was very pleasant and the public parking is much better/closer than many other beaches in this area. The music selection was perfect. We stayed all day and most of the night.

“OK”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

Years ago this place was great. There is not much there now. It is ok for a few hours but that is about it.

“Nice beach for the sun and sand”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

The beach is nice, no seaweed, water sometime warm... and always clean. The surrounding city and places are less than average, nothing very interesting else than the beach. The rules near the beach are annoying, no board, no flying kite, nothing at all.
