South Street Beach is a quiet beach with limited amenities. What this beach lacks in amenities it makes up for in solitude. With limited parking at the main lot across from Linwood Street and limited parking at adjacent South Street Park, beach space is always available. Entry to the water is gradual with a mild descent, and the waves are small and lake-like. The sand has a mix of crushed shells, pebbles, and seaweed that become denser close to the water.
