Fred Benson Town Beach

Named Coastal Living’s “Best Beach for Families,” Fred Benson has everything young kids (and their parents) could want -- a wide white sand beach with low surf, a lifeguard, and ice cream. The main draw here is the beach pavilion, which offers showers and restrooms, a changing room with lockers, and a concession stand for the all-important snacks. (You can also rent chairs, umbrellas, cabanas and boogie boards.) Just a mile from town, the beach features easy parking and a short car-to-beach walk, making it among the island’s most popular (and populated.) Large beach pavilion makes Fred Benson Beach easy to locate.
