  • Good Beach for young children. The waters are very calm. Did not enjoy all of the seaweed on the beach, but my grandchildren LOVED throwing it on each other.  more »
  • Was surprised at how nice and sandy the water was. It was also very shallow with not too many waves so there were a lot of families.  more »

  • This is a fabulous Beach for people with small children. The waves are mild the lifeguards are attentive the parking is very close to the beach so there is not a whole lot of walking with all of your stuff to schlep!!! There is a naturalist on staff all day long and Exhibits from the ocean for the children to get a Hands-On feel! that was fabulous for my granddaughters!! Parking fees are very reasonable and I will definitely be coming back to this beach for many many more years!!
  • Large family beach, sheltered from the Atlantic by the Harbor of Refuge... rock jetties help to block big waves making it enjoyable for small children. There is a very popular playground here if your child tires of the sand and water. Large snack bar offers good selection of burgers, dogs, fish tacos, etc.
