The beach is walkable from the house [Vacation Rental ID 10665] and has a great boardwalk that leads you very close to the water! If you like ice cream bring a bit of cash for the ice cream truck. There are also public restrooms and lifeguards on duty. It can get crowded so arrive early to set up even if you don’t go back until later!

Great sand but better still is great for swimming. Lots of families. Good place to walk the beach either to Wychmere Harbor or to Allen's Harbor.

Bank Street Beach has a short boardwalk to the beach and public restrooms. The sand is beautiful, the water is clear, and it is a nice place to sunbathe and swim. Walks on the beach are good in both directions. Don't miss the sunsets over the water. This is a child-friendly beach filled by people of all ages. Bring your beach chair, a good book, and your favorite summer beverage with a snack. People come here and stay for hours for good reasons!

The proximity is hard to resist and the ice cream man is there every day. Great beach for long walks to the jetty near Wychmere Harbor Club and picking up shells along the way.

Great waves, warm water

We took a friend to Bank Street beach on a Friday afternoon and were super happy to find perfect waves for our kids, warm water, and plenty of parking. Bank Street beach also has flush toilets. Love this late afternoon sun on the water picture.
