  • Nice clean beach, with a huge parking lot, clean bath rooms and less crowd. Perfect to see the sunset. Dont forget to get some food from Aunt Carries nearby.
  • Big parking lot, easy to park but must come early. Fair prices, running toilets, shop, food/drinks. Gets very crowded during summer seasion. Good for families with small kids. Small waves make it easy to leean how to swim. We wanted a change and see RI but prefer Cape Cod though. They offered free antigen and PCR testing so we did it. Nice benefit :)
  • Excellent beach. Very clean and laid back vibe. No seaweed or sharp rocks.
  • A nice spacious beach with plenty of services and relatively calm waters for small children. While it does cost to park here you can dodge it after 6pm. Watched locals with envy as they showed up to eat dinner šŸ• šŸ· and watch the sun go down. So had to come back and do it like them. Wonderful summer vacation memories here šŸ‘šŸ¼
  • Nice beach, but very rocky along the shore line getting into the water. Has a playground which is nice when it's not too hot to slide down the slide. Pavilion also!
