Twin Lakes State Beach
Twin Lakes State Beach Review
Stretching a half mile along the coast on both sides of the small-craft harbor jetties, Twin Lakes is one of the sunniest beaches on the bay. It encompasses Seabright State Beach (with access in a residential neighborhood on the upcoast side) and Black's Beach on the downcoast side. Families often come here to sunbathe, picnic, and hike the nature trail around adjacent Schwann Lake. Limited parking is available next to the main access down from the harbor—arrive early in the day to nab a space (free during the week, permits required on weekends from April through September). You can also park in the pay lot in the harbor. Leashed dogs are allowed. Amenities: food and drink; lifeguards (seasonal); parking; showers; toilets; water sports (seasonal). Best For: sunset; surfing; swimming; walking.
