  • Bad water quality. The water is really dirty with lots of floating trash. I tried to convince myself it wasn't that bad until a bandaid floated by, then it was time to go!
  • Great place to kayak with little ones. Nice shade and 30 grills to cook on.
  • Great beach for volleyball. You need to get the early to get a court, though. It's sheltered from wind, there's lots of inexpensive parking. There's even a convenience store right by it so you can grab snacks and drinks. It's not a good beach to swim in because the water is really oily because it's in the marina with all the boats.
  • Great beach. Protected from the wind. The water is much warmer here. Still. Great for paddle boarding.
  • Perfect place for a BBQ! Alistair Vigier HART Legal Investor relations
