The beach in front of Coast Cottages is the widest and best stretch of beach on the island. At low tide, the beach joins the sandbars and you can walk straight out to sea for a ½ mile! The morning sunrises are spectacular … bring a camera. The waves are small which is why skimboarding is popular here. Shell collecting varies with the season, but early risers get the best selection.

Most people who visit here for the first time wonder why more people haven’t discovered this place. It’s truly unique and beautiful.
