Less populated than the mainland, across the footbridge. Nice clear water for swimming. Sandy. Good fishing. Top spot for a picnic. Safe for children. Beautiful sunsets.

Especially if you have kids this is a delight. Playground and lunch spots plus watch pelicans and other bird life. Take a line or rod and try for a fish.
