We rented chairs from our hotel and walked to the beach. We were within walking distance to the snack shop but not super close to other people. Had a relaxing time on the beach with the kids.

This is just a gorgeous spot on Block. The breezes are fantastic being on the windward side of the island. There are restrooms and showers (coin operated) and lots of people!

I'll be attending a wedding on block, and staying on mainland, wondering if I can rent a cabana with shower at one of the beaches so I can enjoy my short stay and get ready for wedding?
