Very disappointing beach. I hate having to step over bottle caps on a beach. Chair we rented collapsed under one of us. We should have gone to Atlantis for the day (but actually glad we didn't because it rained.)

We loved the scenery, but if you walk just a bit further down Bay Street you have a couple more beaches to choose from that are nearly completely private. We just wanted privacy. I suppose if you have kids you’d want a life guarded area,...More
