  • Pretty decent snorkeling it’s a bit of a hike from the parking lot but the cool thing is that once you are on the beach their is a lot to do. You have the option to hop in and snorkel, be sure to bring a pool noodle as their are boats in the water and you want them to be able to spot you! You can also walk to the southern most point of the island along the rams head trail as well as collect natural sea salt from the salt pond! Be sure to bring flip flops to wear on the beach as their are some sticks and twigs, wear shoes when bringing your gear up and back from the parking lot as the walk is rocky and flip flops are guaranteed to be a bad time
  • Not crowded and a great beach! Short easy hike to get there
