Love This Beach For My FamilyI remember my Mom taking us here - we would play on the crescent beach while my Mom would sun herself up on the rocks - where she had a literal birds eye view of all three of us. Great place for a gathering, picnic, etc. The kids always love to play at the playground or explore the old fort surroundings when they have had enough of the beach. It certainly isn't the softest sand beach - but great for explorers.
