Beautiful beach walking distance from our inn! Peaceful and uncrowded. Fun to watch the boats and some seals in the channel off the beach.

We went in March. Water is clean and the sand is very soft which I believe it’s a good choice for kids. We also saw parents brought their kids their for fun. I don’t have much to say but I did enjoy the time waking along with the beach under the pure blue sky.
Really lovely to walk especially at low tide. Dogs allowed during off season. Here are some pics from early October of walking to the right once you enter the beach from the parking lot and walk down a bit. Beach itself is not handicap accessible. Stairs.
Such a great place!!! People are walking and smiling Parking spots are limited but you can always find one Be ready to walk barefoot Bathrooms are available Windy, and a bit exhausting if you plan to go far especially if you are with the kids because they will not be able to make 30 min walk on a sandy beach.
Smooth sand but there's a lot of seaweed. Good parking and rest rooms. It's the Atlantic, so the water is cooler.
Great views of the ocean and good spot to see the seals swim. My kids didn’t really like the signs though lol
