South End Beaches

South End Beaches

Alder Lane
The southern most beach is located beside the Marriott Grand Ocean Resort on South Forest Beach Rd. at Alder Lane. There is parking across South Forest Beach Rd at the meters for 25¢ for 15 minutes (22 metered spaces). This is a nice wide beach and is relatively uncrowded. Amenities include restrooms and a drink vending machine. It's an easy bike ride from most south end locations. This beach also is equipped with rubber mats that make it wheelchair accessible.

Coligny Beach
This beach is located at Coligny Circle at Pope Avenue and South Forest Beach Drive. It's the island's busiest beach, in part because volleyball nets are available and an outdoor bar is located just off the beach at the Beach House Holiday Inn. There are rest rooms, changing rooms, water fountains, sand showers, pay telephones and other amenities. This beach also has seasonal life guards and beach rentals available. The town has recently added mats designed to make the beach wheelchair accessible at this location. Free parking is available at the town parking lot across the street from the Beach House Holiday Inn. Coligny Plaza, adjacent, offers many shops and eateries. Though this beach can become crowded in season, you have only to walk a few hundred yards North or South to get away from the crowds.
