Ballston Beach was easy to access, especially with all the beach gear in tow. I prefer the ocean side to bay side. It had a great sandbar so the kids could go out and jump in the waves and not be too deep.

Constantly changing from year to year but always enjoyable. Water a bit chilly at our time of year. Great for walking.
Love the extensive sand bars in years when they are present.

Our kids (12 and 13) love the big surf on the ocean side, but they're both good swimmers and are cautious-- they'll get out if seals are lingering too closely and stay where they can touch bottom. Younger kids will like Ryder and Fisher Beaches. Beautiful, calm and much warmer water-- and uncrowded is an understatement. I you want to find playmates you may need to go to a busier beach!

Ballston Beach is beautiful, especially early in the morning. In fact, we got married there.

Beautiful dunes, secluded if you walk far enough from entrance.

Easy access, beautiful sandbars, great waves and loads of curious seals popping up to look at us!
