This is a very beautified sandy beach and very quiet. L Can go out far during low tide so great for long walks

Nice spot to get away from the hotels, and tourist cluster. The water there is great, and with such a laid back attitude from all the locals. It's fun to get out and do some exploring!

We were here twice found different things to look at both times. Once at low tide the other at high tide. Able to walk beach both times.

This beach is a great hidden gem. It is public but virtually uninhabited. It is a little hard to find but follow the signs and turn into one of the drives into the woods. Park and walk a few feet to the beach.

I LOVE Barbary Beach, this is my family party beach. It's clean, quite and out of the public's reach. You would feel like this is your very own beach in your back yard. I LOVE IT!!.

You need to have transportation to get here as there are no hotels close by. Gorgeous beach, but that's it. Nothing else here. If you want a huge beach to yourself with no other human being around, this is it. No vendors, stores, restaurant, nothing...More
