What a lovely November in Port A. The city beach was so nice and clean. I was up each morning and on the beach before 6a for a walk with our jack russell. What lovely sunrises followed by gorgeous days.

Clean,spacious and wide beach with vehicle access. Waves were small, but swell was on the way. The Horace Caldwell pier (Port A pier), was accessible for a small fee.
