  • Great beach, so many memories from camp!
  • There is a short, roughly half-mile hike out to the beach. The hike is very easy and I’ve often taken toddlers walking by them self so it shouldn’t be a problem for most. The beach itself is very nice and is a very popular beach for surfers because of the larger waves. It’s mostly sand, with rocks lining the upper edge. I highly recommend Short Sands for a day of adventure or for surfing. It can provide both with ease!
