Gulfside Beach reviews
We loved this huge beach. It's a lot bigger than the lighthouse beach. Shells galore! It's very beautiful & clean. It was our favorite beach. Great for a long walk & shelling.

This beach is beautiful. Not overcrowded at all, and we came on a Friday and. Saturday. On Saturday we waited about 10 minutes for parking and it was worth the wait. We found many beautiful shells, the water was lovely and the beach is clean. We will absolutely be back I'm the future. The beach we used to go to is not private so we wandered around until we found this one. There are some walking trails at this beach as well and a shell identifier chart.
A nice little park, get here early if you don't want to wait for a parking spot to open up. A good beach for shelling, a little busy if you just want a relaxing day at the beach. And just like the rest of the island, parking is a ripoff. Went from $2/hr to $5/hr. I guess we're supposed to subsidize them instead of their own taxpayers.
