Tradition! We have been to Bass River for many years n feel comfortable there. We also went to Sea Gull Beach a number of times and loved the fact that we could walk there!

The best part was the beach - it’s a quiet and small beach with a long wading distance. If you have smaller kids you know how crazy it is to try to keep track of them in huge waves. This beach is ideal - we actually got some relaxation time, which is a huge deal for us!!

Just walk down the beach to the Bass River estuary. Watch people fish and launch their boats. Sit on a bench and watch the River flow. Enjoy the sand sculpture next to the launch area and along the sidewalk back to the house.

We generally go to Bass river beach daily. It is an expansive sandy beach and my grandchildren love crabbing off the pier with their dad. Also watching the boats/yachts go in and out of the Bass river outlet just adds to the whole experience.

This beach is terrific for families. It has a great snack bar, clean bathrooms and plenty of room for the kids to play. The parking lot can fill up on nice days so get there before late morning.

Great for little children as long as you stay near shoreline . Tides can be very strong and change suddenly if you swimming or are kayaking need to check tide schedule

It was within walking distance [of Property ID 21283]. My husband and I would drop the girls off with all the beach chairs, coolers and other beach stuff and we would go back to the house and park the car and walk back to the beach that is how close it is to the house. We did this out of the 7 days we were there we went to the beach 4.
