There are restaurants to walk to, a picnic area with tables away from the water, where lots of families gather on a warm weekend. During the summer,... More

Mother's Beach is a nice set away area with good wide sand and calm water from the channel, so quite safe - thus the name given to it. Fun to walk by and see the young families enjoying the water. Great for tourists & locals alike. Pretty neat. ...

Mother's Beach is a fun place to stroll and see all the boats in the Marina. It is not too crowded, and it a great place to see the marina.

Nice calm beach, no waves. This is the perfect spot to take kids that want to get in the water. No waves to worry about here, plenty of parking and a nice kids area too.
