Bay Oaks has a wonderful family pool. You have to keep your eye out for it because it sits off the road a bit. Look for Tops supermarket and its right next door. It has a small child area with a walk in shallow pool that works well for toddlers. It also has a water slide for the older kids. We love to go by after a long day at the beach to wash off the salt water and relax under the supersized umbrellas. The snack bar offers the usual hotdogs and ice cream snacks.

A place for sports and local activities, has the only public tennis courts on the island. Located mid island next to the beach school , not easy to find. Free parking too. Nature walking park is about 2 blocks away and is very nice, known as Matanzas Preserve. Check them both out.

If you want to play doubles tennis but don't like having to make arrangements this place is perfect. Just show up in the AM and you will be paired up with other like minded players for a set of tennis. A few special scoring rules apply to keep the sets moving. There are 4 courts at Bay oaks. If you want the arranged doubles go to the 2 behind the rec center from sun rise to about 11:00. Tip: get there early for the best matches. The other 2 next to the school playground are not used as much due to their misallignment with the sun. Also check out the rec center schedule and participate in any other activity from volleyball to weight lifting and many more.
