Large beach, decent sand (not full of shells), super warm water. Most of the beaches on this side have seaweed issues but not that bad. The snack bar is expensive so bring your own food/drinks. There's a small swing set along with showers. Parking is...More

we love to walk on this beach early in the morning and in the evening, surrounded by tons of seagulls who watch what you are doing and if by chance you have something to eat. The beach is covered with interesting shells. It is relaxing...More

Although the part of the beach full of tourists is full of yucky seaweed. The end of the beach, known to locals as Boater's Beach, is a great place to take your family and or your boat. Located on the Bass River there is little...More
