Beach looks lovely for families. Food is soooooooo bad. Ordered fish and chips Looked and tasted undercooked. Bland, bland, bland. Salt didn't help the taste. Hope they change cooks for next year. Have fond memories of years past.

Sandbars (real and restaurant) and beach! This is a great beach, especially if you have small children that don't like waves. Calm, clear water and the sandbar about 100 yards out is fun to go out to. Water height to get there changes with the...More

Jetties is a clean beach where you can watch the ferries and other boats come in and out of the harbor. Convenient to have bathrooms and restaurant on site. Beware: bathrooms only have hot water so can't get cold water for anything. Like the mat...More
