We love this beach for it's sand dunes, the quietness of it and it's clean sand. The little ones can walk quite far without having too much water on them and the waves are just perfect.

We love taking the dogs here in the Winter, and strolling the beach. The views are great, the roads are plowed, and there's parking on location.

The water is very shallow although pretty clean. There are only port-o-potties there, no real bathrooms or changing rooms. Just an OK beach, really - we preferred the North Beach in Burlington, VT by far.

We love going to Alburg Dunes. Get there early - as soon as it opens - and you can be sure to find a nice spot to set up for the day. It does get quite crowded especially on summer weekends. If you can manage...More
