Loch Haven's beach is a treasured part of our community. Located on the South River, the sandy beach is approximately two blocks long. The main entrance is a paved path at South River Terrace and Cedar Drive.
The beach features a swimming area where LHCA members install nets in the summer to protect swimmers from jellyfish (sea nettles). Picnic tables, benches, and a small playground are also popular features of the beach and add to community members' enjoyment of the property. They are located at the northwest end of the beach along the living shoreline, with a good view of an osprey nest in the summer.
LHCA organizes community parties on the beach each year. Members and accompanied guests (but sorry, not dogs) have beach privileges.
In order to preserve the beach area for the enjoyment of its members, we ask that everyone who visits the beach abide by the following rules: 1) Members only; 2) Excessive noise, abusive behavior, drinking by minors, and glass containers are prohibited; 3) No loitering; 4) No dogs permitted; 5) No diving; 6) No tying or anchoring of boats to platforms or swim areas.
The beach is maintained by the LHCA Beach Committee. Contact the Beach Chair if you would like to volunteer to help keep the beach beautiful.
