Kalmus beach has always been our favorite because you have the choice of calm water on one side and waves on the other side.

Kalmus was nice because it is 'separated' by a jetty which one side is the harbor with a smaller, more kid friendly beach while the other side is longer but more ocean facing. Great snack shack, clean bathrooms and huge parking lot that was pretty damn empty all week which was a plus.

Great, steady wind. Separate place for windsurfers. Snack bar. Good walking beach. Can walk over to Memorial Beach and the JFK Memorial Monument.

Near the house, great snack bar, a lot of space, and shallow for kids. Just watch out for the sea gulls who will take your food.
