If you're not from the area, of even if you are, this is one of the best places to watch the sun set over Lake Ontario. If you're a beach goer, the beach is small but clean, it's very amenable for small children, and the facilities are immaculate.

Great place to watch the sunset . Water is very shallow which we didn't mind. Had a cute little store with beach items in case you forgot something. Enjoyed our time here.

To get to the "park" requires a lengthy drive down an incredibly busy/congested/"beach-area" (of sorts), to finally arrive at the SP. Small beach, lots of stones on the beach, but the water is quite free of them. Lots of lifeguards. However, not a "destination" per se, but a "if you need to swim and are in the area".

My husband and I took a trip to this beach over the weekend, and were very happy with our visit! the lake is beautiful and clean, and although the beach area, and picnic area were pretty small, we still enjoyed spending the day on the beach!! Would definitely return!!

This beach is probably the kind of place that locals think is the nuts! For them, it may be. But, if you have ever been to Eagle or Manchebo Beaches on Aruba, Trunk Bay in St. John's, Ka'anapoli on Maui or even the more commercial beaches at Waikiki on Oahu, well, there is just no comparison. It's like matching up... More

Sandy Island Beach is really a hidden gem. It's a nice place to head on a beautiful, sunny day. The beach has nice, sandy beaches, wonderful views of Lake Ontario and clean facilities. Be sure to stay for a beautiful sunset too!

It was cold when we went but beautiful. The dog friendly policy is what made us stop. It was a wonderful walk.

Less than an hour from Syracuse. Serene, quaint beach with families of all ages and nationalities. Quiet and clean. And fun!!! Lifeguards were alert, not obnoxious. Discovered tiny shop on way out with ice cream sandwiches!

So beautiful. Amazing view, quiet, clean facilities. Great for families and couples alike. Camp sites looked big and beautiful, and costs very reasonable.
