Get there early and pick any of the donuts that just came out of the cooker. They are fantastic! My favorite is the chocolate donut. The egg sandwiches are also a great deal and so good.

Beach doughnut has the absolute best in doughnuts on to shoreline. I don't go often, because I couldn't help myself from not enjoying them. Fresh made on premium and good varieties. Always a hit.

One of the Best Donut shops anywhere. I really like the sour creme donut. I can see why this place is on Gruhub's 50 best donut shops in America list.

Places like this are getting harder and harder to find. The BEST DONUTS!! Forget everyone else, Beach Donuts are the best donuts you can buy. Everything is of the highest quality. Made in the shop fresh everyday. Fresh brewed coffee all day. They even freeze coffee into ice cubes for the iced coffee, so your iced coffee is not watered... More

Stopped to get donuts on a visit to the shore. Always worth the drive. Favorite are the lemon sticks---tart and yummy not that sugary gel. The chocolate donuts are super chocolatey and addictive. My husband always gets a danish or cinnamon roll for the ride. A must try. 😁

These are the best donuts anywhere. I go out of my way for them and anyone I send there salivate over Beach Donuts. They have all kinds from light cinnamon to heavier crullers. BTW their breakfast sandwiches are great as well.

Everyone I know has a story about a place that serves the best donuts they've ever had. Well, we're pretty well-traveled, and based upon our experience, this place has the very best donuts we've had, provided they are consumed soon after purchase. On weekends, there is almost always a line of patrons waiting to be served. The donuts are made... More

This is one of those not to be missed unique places. And oh by the way? The donuts are transformative. Worse than potato chips you can not eat just one! Really great and fun stop.
