Oval Beach - One of the BEST Beaches
• One of the Top 25 beaches in the world (Condé Naste Magazine)
• One of the two top freshwater beaches in the USA (National Geographic Traveler Magazine)
• One of the five best beaches in the United States (MTV)
So, you can take less than a 20 minute drive to get to one of the BEST Beaches in the country. You get to the beach via a winding road past a plethora of cottages, tennis courts, and the sailing club, and through a forest (a challenge to bike this road!). You emerge to a gorgeous vista. Turn right, you’ll hit the showers/bathrooms/concession stand. Past that, you’ll see a gentle slope to the beach, with lots of parking. On the south end, however, is the magic – fewer parking spaces, a rickety wooden stair to descend, gorgeous grasses in the dune, and a quieter beach. There will be one or two sandbars to swim to. Rocky few feet toward the lakeshore, then clean sandy bottom. No lifeguard on the south end. Park Fees Apply, unless you’re headed there for a sunset swim – the toll booth closes around 9.
Drive just past the entrance to the park, and you can climb Mt. Baldy and then cross the dunes to the beach – jump in for a refreshing cool-down!
