We chose this access point when we saw how miserably crowded Coligny was. If you take the access path and head right, you'll be able to stake out a plot of sand with an unobstructed view to the ocean. Great for watching your kids from...More

Beautiful beach without being as crowded as Coligny. However, it does not have free parking like Coligny. Perfect option if you are staying within walking or bike riding distance. We were here everyday of our vacation! Also, nice area to wash off when leaving.

After riding bikes through the busy beaches the day before, we were looking for a quieter beach and came across this place. Costs $0.25 per 15 minutes to park (we spent 3 hours) and meters only take coins...no cards. Cross the street by the Marriott...More

If you're taking the classic Forest Beach/Cordillo walking loop, Alder Lane is a good beach access, with restrooms. From there you can walk 1/2 mile I'd guess to Coligny Beach park.

This is a safe and convenient way to access the beach from the Seasacape villas where we stayed. It is just a five minute walk.

we walked this lane every day to the beach. It's a beautiful walk with a public restroom on the walkway to and from the beach with outside showers to rinse off the sand. Seasonal lifeguard at the beach at the end of the walkway.

Parking in front, need quarter, and walk to the long, lonely and beautiful beach. Perfect to rest or play beach games

Next to Marriott Grand Ocean on S Forest Beach Rd. Must park across S. Forest Beach Rd so you need to walk a moderate distance.
