  • Love East beach. Easy parking, free volleyball and great sand. Go down to the West side of the beach as there is more things happening around there. B they used to have a beach restaurant but they tore it down and they are building something new. If you want to dine on the beach go to leadbetter beach which is not far away
  • Brought lunch here on a Thursday afternoon. It was beautiful. Not too crowded, soft sand, and beautiful water. There is parking for $2/hr and a port-a-potty. There is a rental kiosk for paddle boards, umbrellas, chairs, etc. You can also rent bikes nearby and walk along the whole stretch of beach. There is a paved path for bikes, running, and walking. Plenty of parking all along the beach. Some free street parking as well.
