  • The scenery of marina shishole of the sunset, so that's nice. Well I think that's an unknown gem. The combination of a sunset with the yacht docked on the one hand it was like a picture of.

  • Went here after visiting Golden gardens park right next door. Nice to walk out on the little pier and watch as the crab boats get ready to go out or come in. Very peaceful place.  more »

  • This certainly is a very popular place with people walking their dogs, running, pushing strollers, and sitting enjoying the lovely views! Lots of children playing on the beach enjoying lunch or a snack. Just a great place to enjoy the day.
  • Great place to come and look at people and wonder why they waste their money on boat parking. Over 90% of the boats never move. What’s the point. Who’s passion is it to pay for boat parking
