Clean and nice place to spend the afternoon

Moonshine beach is a very nice beach well taken care of. There is a small fee for beach usage but it is worth it.

I was a short but nice drive the landscape out by the beach is beautiful. It was a little to go to the beach on the day we were there, but there was a few people there.

I lost the function of the beach. You have to cross lots of rock to get to the water. There is a ramp for wheelchairs that go down to the ROCKS!!!! What a tease. Overall this area is a terrible tease. It has so much to offer but is not well cared for, nor well thought out.

This is a great place to go for staff gatherings such as we attended with our daughter-in-law's company. Water is fairly clean and clear for swimming, room to picnic, covered pavilions, plenty of parking space, and lots of people. It is not a sand beach, it is pebbles making it somewhat uncomfortable for walking barefoot. Safe for wading and swimming,... More

We like going to Moonshine Beach. It is clean and never too over crowded. It has a large swim area. Bathrooms are not the cleanest, but they are ok.

We have been to Moonshine Beach several times. You can spend all day here for $5. They rent umbrellas for shade and its sandy not rocky. The only rocks are pebbles. Very nice and clean. Clear water :)

Crowded, must carry your stuff a ways. No pets. Safe for children--no big waves. Nice view. Not free.
