We rode our bikes out to Cisco Beach, stopping at Bartlett Farm for sandwiches, and Cisco Brewers for a beverage. The ride is an easy one, with bike path much of the way. Cisco Beach has great parking, if you drive, and plenty of bike racks. Great surf beach!

First visit to Cisco Beach, mainly for photos of the sunset as it was close to the house we had rented. DId not go into the water but the beach looked inviting.

Quiet place, no facilities, new bicycle road near by. Beware of the undertow (rip current) on the entire south side of the island. Clothing optional about 1/2 mile east of here watch out for the police on 4 wheelers if you go this route.

I always love how uncrowded this beach is when I go....the bike path goes all the way out from town now, so it's an easy ride

It was so warm yesterday Oct 3, 21013 that Cisco Beach had a CROWD and they were all swimming. Beautiful this time of year when the sun sparkles off the water.

There is finally a bike path to Cisco beach that covers most of the route. The water here is rough and is where a lot of surfers go. There are portable toilets and a refreshment vendor. I finally got to go swimming for the first time here. It can be very rough. Check your tides for this beach to avoid... More
