We rented a house for a week with extended family and had alot of 'together' time. Late one afternoon toward the end of our trip we rode our bikes up/down Tom Nevers and got to the beach area. It was a gorgeous day and there was no one else there even though it was Friday of Labor Day Weekend. We... More

This is as close to a private beach that you'll find. Our rental is on a bluff looking out to the beach and ocean. Clean and natural with great seashells!

Very quiet and peaceful. The water was clean and the waves were small. No sea weed. Plenty of parking and just a short walk down to the beach.

This place has a delicious energy! Sometimes you can find sea lion pups on the beach or swimming. In the summer they do some events as some fairs.

This is one of the least favorite beaches to hang-out-except for the locals..Many night beach parties for drinking and bonfires...The beach is not always clean..It is in a sprawling neighborhood of cottages and modest houses. The waves are big and even.No great for children as there is sometimes a forceful riptide...Getting there on a walking path can be a good... More

We love Tom Nevers beach. It is remote and pristine away from the crowds. The downside is there are no facilities, but if you a bring a lunch and some chairs you are in for a beautiful day at Tom Nevers!

While there are no public facilities here, if you want a secluded beach with few others around, this is a great beach to visit.

If you are looking for quiet with great waves, come here. Don't come here looking for crowds or a scene (go to Madequecham, Nobadeer, Cisco or Surfside for that)
