They also tell you whether the beach is handicap accessible, pets are allowed, or lifeguards are present.
The Burnhams describe the condition of the sand and let you know if you'll have good luck hunting for shells. Information on nearby concessions, nature trails, nightlife, and opportunities for camping, fishing, kayaking, and beach driving is also provided.
