This is a lovely beach with parking, hotdogs and drinks, a pottie, and a mini-library box as you enter the beach. It is very comfortable and not usually too crowded. There can be some shells/rocks on the shore that may make it difficult to "get...More

Great beach on the sound. It has sticker and public parking for a fee. There are a couple of seals venturing down this way but currently without their preditors! The hot dog and burger stand is very tasty and a great bonus. The walk to...More

Each year we travel to South Harwich and stay at a rented home within a ten minute walk of this beach. It is a magical place.

Small, quiet perfect beach. If you are looking to relax, this is the spot. Not great for people watching as the parking lot is small so it limits the number of people here.

Today wasn't the day to go to Red River. From the storm last night tons of seaweed washed up on the beach. With the seaweed came the greenhead flies. I'm sure it's beautiful, but look at the beach prior to parking. If it doesn't improve,...More
