“"For the Masses"”
Reviewed April 28, 2014

Went here on a busy Saturday and wow, felt like we were at the State Fair.......too many people, everywhere! If you are looking for some peace and quiet, I'd suggest you go somewhere else. It seems like it would appeal to the teens/young adult crowd. Too many people for me. Sorry.

“Fun area, great central location near everything”
Reviewed April 26, 2014

This is a very nice beach, and it's located in a very fun area with lots of good shops and restaurants. If you are looking for seclusion, this isn't your place as it's very popular and busy. But if you want to go have fun on a nice beach in a fun area go check this out for sure!

Parking is a bit limited, so you might get a little frustrated by that. But even if you have to park 5 mins away it's worth it.

“Fun for everyone, can be crowded”
Reviewed April 24, 2014

On the whole this is a nice beach, I like to go there with my son as they have amenities close by that I need access to from time to time (restaurants, showers, stores, etc). It can get crowded, and when it's high tide there's not much room to spread out as the tide gets pretty close to the coast line. Try to spread out if you don't like the crowds, which means you'll need to walk a ways to get away from the cluster of people. On the whole though, it's a nice beach and there's free parking which is why it's probably more crowded than other beaches in the area.

“Good public beach access, close to many shops and restaurants.”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

Good public beach access area, with a parking lot right across the street. The parking lot isn't really big, so come a little early. The area is very nice, and has been redone in the past few years. Many shops, restaurants in this area (Coligny Circle) within an easy walk. Wide, soft sand beach, and very easy access and public bathrooms.
