  • One family was pulling in a bunch of very handsome catfish. I even rode my mountain bike out on the pier at one point. A very nice view of the Potomac.  more »
  • The pier will provide great views of the Potomac River and also a nicely kept beach. The day we visited was a little windy so no one was on the beach but it was very clean.  more »
  • It's a nice place to visit with the kids. Make sure to bring a inflatable boat of some kind, or wear a black swimsuit, as swimming in that stretch of water can turn light colored clothes brown pretty quickly. The public bathroom is unpleasant as well, so just be prepared.
  • Love this little beach town and the beach. Its pay by the hour parking, $2 per hour. There is a boardwalk with food trucks, restuarants, vendors and restrooms. There is a hotel and some B&Bs near by. The beach is very clean (lined with trash cans). Big enough that your not rubbing elbows with strangers. Very quiet and peaceful. The police and sheriff do patrol but like I stated, its very quiet. The only down side is the water does have large rocks so wear water shoes.
