Amenities and Ambiance

There is also a concession stand available. Sometimes, visitors will be able to try local specialties from one of the mobile vendors who typically operate along this coastline.

Keep in mind that restrooms won't be found on-site, which is something to consider if you plan to spend a full day in the sun. The Hodges River also flows into the sea at Hodges Beach, and its fresh water is a popular spot for both the young and the young at heart to play and bathe.

Since Hodges Beach can be found inside an area popular among tourist, you'll want to plan accordingly.
