Headlands Beach State Park
Ranked #2 of 20 things to do in Mentor
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed April 19, 2013

I just miss real beaches, I lived New the Pacific ocean half my life, those are beaches, not this gravel sand, trash, dead fish mixture headbands seem to be. The water always smells terrible, and the crud floating in it is not so appealing either. If you are just there for some Sun, then it does its job. Other than that.. meh.

We visited Headlands beach when my children were small, over twenty years ago. My husband and I drove up to see the lake ( we both grew up on Lake Erie shores) and we were very imressed with how much beach Headlands has open to visitors. The lighthouse is picturesque too. We enjoyed a nice walk on the shore, and took photos to enjoy later.

A real jewel. Expansive beach which is great for sports, walking, picnics, etc. Can walk to the lighthouse, hit the snack shop and enjoy the beach. Lots of parking, grills, picnic tables, restroom (which could use some regular attention). All in all a wonderful place.

what a treasure this beach area is! if you cant make your yearly pilgrimage to the beach then this lil piece of heaven near home will get you through and then offer some of its own special charm! a bonus is the great food near by! hold tight to your hat on a those windy days and it will be well worth it to watch the sunset!

Awsome huge beach -- clean and beatiful in the 'warm' weather! Great to walk, hang out, or watch a beautiful Lake Erie Sunset!
