They is an entrance fee ($5 per adult and $2 for parking at time of writing), but it is well worth it for the beach and facilities

This is a beautiful area if you are interested in relaxing in the quiet. Really nice beach, bar area outside and of course food. Away from people which we like as we get off the ship.

We spent the day at Meagan’s Beach the views were fantastic and the ocean was breathtaking, the bar was great to have and a small eatery made the day wonderful. There is also a 1 mile trail for hiking. I highly recommend this location

Beautiful white sand beach in natural inlet. Usually calm water unless a swell or storm is passing through. Amazing for hanging out and sunning. Not much reef for snorkeling except a little on the far ends. Still lots of sea life (turtles, rays, fish) and...More

Not very difficult to get into. We came from the Red Hook area, so it was maybe a 30 minute drive but very scenic. If you have Waze or Google Maps, you shouldn't have any issues getting in there.
