Fodor's Expert Review Burkes Beach
This beach is usually not crowded, mostly because it is a bit hard to find and there are no lifeguards on duty. At sunrise, birds and deer bring the adjacent marsh to life. Visitors must park at the Chaplin Community Park at 11 Cast Net Drive, since there is no longer parking on Burkes Beach Road. Time a visit around low tide—the marsh flooding during high tide can cut off access. Amenities: parking; showers. Best for: solitude; sunrise; swimming; windsurfing.
