Beautiful beach, clean with a wonderful view of the sunset. Very busy with people walking on the pier, and watching the seagulls.

Came here on a blistery fall windy day. While the north beach is bigger, the south beach I think is more convenient as it's walking distance to all the downtown shops, restaurants, and bars. I can imagine this is a wonderful place in the summer.

Amazing beach! Drove up from Indy on Friday night and arrived just in time to watch the sunset. A little cold as we expected since it was the end of September, but we will definitely be back. Quiet beach on Saturday, even saw a beach...More

Sunny, not crowded, pure water, clean beach sand. We relaxed by the water side and spent a lot of time in the warm water which is unusual for September.

PRIVATE signs on beach only mean you cannot stop - but you can walk through to the next PUBLIC area.

The beach was huge. It was clean white soft sandy beaches. My kids could play in the water and have fun all day. The water went up to my knees for about 40 yards out it was amazing. It wasn't too busy plenty of space...More

Between the south and north beach, we enjoyed the north beach a bit more as it seems bigger and had fewer people on it. The sunset on the beach here too was very nice.
