This beach is way less crowded than Hamonnaseth beach , which is near this beach. Water stays below knee level for about 300-400 feet. So it is very nice to go with Kids. Parking fee was $20 which I felt very high. There is not much parking space. There is only 1 stall which serves food. Toilet was closed before... 更多
My family of boys and their cousins, ranging from ages 13 to 1, loved this beach. It was perfect for the little baby, and the bigger kids. They saw schools of fish, found some really good rocks to skip, and the water was low enough we didn't have to worry as much. The water was so clear and at low... 更多
We stopped by simply to get a glimpse of it, as we were guests at the nearby Saybrook Point Inn. It's the closest beach to the Inn and I believe the Inn provides a free parking pass, but even with that, I wouldn't go. The sand is very course, the beach is small, and the water is mucky and has... 更多

Harvey's is an hour from us in Western MA and it's only $10 for the day. There are bathrooms and changing areas-... 更多
This beach is very shallow and one can walk the shoals for quite a ways. Still, if you get out far enough, good for swimming. Harvey's does not have the pain-in-the-neck rocks and foot cutting oyster beds that Jacob's beach has - ugh! Nice views too. There were horse flies and jellyfish when I went on Friday. I wish the... 更多
Not much of a beach for swimming, especially as the tide retreats, but it is a gorgeous location and open to the general public...for a price. While residents pay for a season parking pass, visitors pay a daily rate, so be advised.
Just returned from an evening visit to Harvey's beach. I went to listen to my book and watch the day calmly turn into night. Not a place to swim. But a pleasant place to sip wine and watch kite flyers, crabbers, hand-holders and waders. And, in late fall, a beautiful sunset.
