"The Point" is a great place for a walk on the beach, or taking the kids to the playground, or having a picnic, or just watching the sunset. Many places to park. Road is one way - so come from the western side.

"The Point" as it is called by locals is a great place for a walk on the beach or just a sit on a bench and watch the sunset!! There is plenty of parking. It's open May through October.

A nice place for a picnic, walk, bike ride, or view of the sunset. Plenty of picnic tables, playgrounds, volleyball courts and room to keep all happy. A nice mix of sun and shade. The beach has lifeguards during the summer.
