This is one of the finest beaches I have ever been at. We felt like we had the beach to ourselves. The wind was wonderful, white sand, sand grass, and very well maintained. The walk through the marsh was fascinating at dusk.

The staff was so knowledgeable and friendly. I could almost imagine being there as a retreat and the sound of the ocean was soothing.

Another state beach which is stunning. Beaches are clean and patrolled frequently by rescue staff. Yes shells for the collectors and shark teeth. Remnants of previous structures with interesting history. Gift shop located on premises with all your beach needs. Entry to park $5.

This is a beautiful beach ($5.00 per person) and before the busy season, the crowds quickly thin out and the beach is almost deserted. Our dog loved the walk, and dogging the waves. The Huntington house, built during the Great Depression, is close to the...More

Which is the best picnic shelter to reserve close to the ocean but not a long walking distance from the parking area? Looking at a small wedding in September and need a location for older guest to sit for a short ceremony in the sand prior to the event.

There are nice covered picnic tables near the boardwalk that leads to the beach from the parking lot. Not a long walk!!
What is the temp like in mid-april? Is it warm enough for the kids to enjoy swimming? Would they burn by the sun at that time of year?

The water was cold my kids got wet but it was too cold to swim. We did get some sun though so yea you can still get a burn.
can you just go there and walk around even though you are not camping?
