Amenities

Vessup Bay is a lovely beach. The shoreline is mostly undeveloped and there you will find a variety of flora; sea grape trees, cacti, century plants among others. The long stretch of sand is great for taking a leisurely stroll and the calm waters are nice for swimming. It is common to find sea grass in the water and washed up on the shore. During the week the beach is often lightly populated but on weekends it is a favorite choice for residents having birthday parties, barbecues and family picnics.

Vessup Bay Beach ~ Skip It!

The water and view looking from the sand into the bay is gorgeous.  The view from the water looking to the beach is awful.  There was the seat from a car, a broken office chair and trash strewn everywhere with plastic shopping bags hanging from trees.  I'm thinking a trash can would be a good idea because people obviously aren't taking their trash with them.  I didn't see a booth renting equipment but if there were one, that may cut down on the broken furniture littering the beach.  There seems to be a resident rooster and chickens calling the beach home.  This beach has potential but right now, it's trashy and a little sketchy.  Don't waste your time here.  Go somewhere else.
