My favorite beach on the island so far. Showers, changing rooms, restrooms available. During the season there is food too. Plenty of parking and wide area to explore. Can be rough tho in the surf.

Shack on the beach with picnic tables. Good lemonade but pricey. Crab sandwich was really really good.
