Must see · Beach · Nature / Park
Experience soft white sands and calm sheltered waters of Doctor's Cave Beach, named so after it was donated to the community by Dr. Alexander James McCatty. The site became even more popular after a respected early 20th-century osteopath commented on the waters supposed rejuvenating qualities. You're able to rent umbrellas and chairs here, however, the trees that line the beach provide some natural shade. Take to the clear water with your snorkeling gear or relax on the sand with cocktail in hand.

  • I used to LOVE this beach but Pier One (new mgmnt) is turning it into a nursing home...the security guard is downright harassing---"your music is too loud...can't smoke ANYTHING while lounging and on....  more »
  • This beach is very relaxing. Not as busy as in the past due to covid. Spectacular views clear waters. There are showers and changing rooms available.  more »

  • The beach was clean and breathtakingly beautiful! The entire property was a sweet sight to experience and the staff was very helpful. We didn't have towels and they offered to walk with us across the road to get towels and the gentleman waited on us to finish and walked back with us. We had some really good encounters with the staff. The captain on the boat was knowledgeable and kind. He understood our fear of being on the water especially in the deep parts and was very kind and reassuring. It was an overall amazing experience. I'm definitely going back.
  • Safe place with police presence on the hip strip. Great beach with admission charge. Keeps the riff-raff away. Bring your own towel or be prepared to rent one for 5 bucks.
