We had a little family get away on a beach, and really enjoyed the day out. Lovely long sandy beach with wooden tables and benches. Great BBQ facilities. Clean toilets and a huge parking lot. This was fun for everyone!

The beach is six hundred yards long and at low tide extends out to the deep water channel. Going out that far is not safe. At high tide there is practically no beach at all. Inland from the beach is a large grass area which...More
