Directly across from the Beachview parking lot there is another entrance to the boardwalk. This previously led to a set of stairs that descended down to the beach, but due to beach erosion, these stairs were removed when the boardwalk was reconstructed in 2010. Click here for an interesting history of the second way down, when the beach was connected to the docks, and a look at the public bathhouse.
