Beautiful Landscape!

The pier area with aquarium is gorgeous. The beach and surrounding area is a sight to see at night. The waves tend to be pretty large, so beware if you plan to take a dive!

It was New Year's Day weekend, so it was crowded, but everyone was polite and seemed to be having a good time. It was neat and clean and thankfully the restrooms were open and clean also.

I came early Saturday morning and it was beautiful! The people are friendly, there were volleyball nets available, surfers in the water, joggers around and the view was incredible. Did not stay for long but there are shops and restaurants nearby

Surfing, biking, jogging and walking along the Boardwalk on a clear winter day could not be better. Many casual inexpensive restaurants.

Visited MHB for the first time in August 2015. Walked along this area and enjoyed the warm sunshine. Nice views of the beach, surf, and many residences along this stretch.

I've been to most the beaches in the area and this one is my favorite. There is plenty of food choices, parking and the beach is clean and not too crowded. Definitely stop here!

We were walking with our teen boys. The beach is beautiful. Even our teen boys were happy to stop and watch the surfers. Weather was perfect for a walk. Too cold to swim without a wet suit in dec. very wonderful place to be outside and relax. Volley ball courts were there too. Separate place for swimming from the designated... More
