Roger W. Wheeler State Beach reviews
Beautiful beach and great for children but tons of rocks! We especially liked the jungle gym and the clean facilities. I would come here again but found other beaches great for kids and with a lot... more »
Good Beach for young children. The waters are very calm. Did not enjoy all of the seaweed on the beach, but my grandchildren LOVED throwing it on each other. more »
This is a fabulous Beach for people with small children. The waves are mild the lifeguards are attentive the parking is very close to the beach so there is not a whole lot of walking with all of your stuff to schlep!!! There is a naturalist on staff all day long and Exhibits from the ocean for the children to get a Hands-On feel! that was fabulous for my granddaughters!! Parking fees are very reasonable and I will definitely be coming back to this beach for many many more years!!
Large family beach, sheltered from the Atlantic by the Harbor of Refuge... rock jetties help to block big waves making it enjoyable for small children. There is a very popular playground here if your child tires of the sand and water. Large snack bar offers good selection of burgers, dogs, fish tacos, etc.
