This beach is for Seabrook residents and they don't have to pay but visitors do. I can understand why because if I lived in SeaB I would want my beach cleaned and not dirtied by people that don't care. I hate trashy people who don't know how to use the trash can. I mean seriously. I also can understand residents... More

We had a picnic listening to the waves, no crowds just water and sand. I love this beach its free in the fall. Super close to the cruise terminal so if you have some time before you set sail start your vacation here relaxing for an hour.

It's a well kept secret it's even there. Quiet. Would love to do back! Just wish the bathroom situation was better.

We passed by this beach and there is a home made like sign stating that a $10 per adult and $5 for children entrance fee was going to be charged. This seems to me like a joke. I don't believe this the place is so great so it's need to be so expensive. I understand the neighborhood trying to keep... More

This is a nice beach for the most part, there's a little trash, but that's to be expected. It wasn't crowded and the people that were there were very friendly.

The best beach to fish, walk, hang out with your dogs and get to know your neighbors. If you live in Seabrook there are no parking fees to park in the summer time... great festivals!!! Bring your family for a great barbeque time. Make sand castles and enjoy yourself. Watch for the speed bumps! If you vet tired at the... More

If you're dropping off some friends at the Bayport cruise terminal. instead of turning right on Port Road continue straight and turn left into El Jardin. Follow El Jardin Drive to the end and park in the teeny tiny parking lot. You should have the best view of the ship leaving. I haven't yet been charged for entering the beach/park,... More

It's the best secret Seabrook has to offer truly a local hangout where the locals go with there kids. Super family friendly. Gotta pay for parking in the summer but worth it
