This island has a number of benches to sit and watch the surf, surfers, and sailboats. In addition the tidal pool is great to float around in, see a few fish, and watch parents teach their kids to swim as it was calm. Much quieter...More

We've been coming here for years and it is still a favorite "oasis" to go to. Great for walking, sitting and people watching, looking at weddings taking place, having picnics, and more. Our favorite thing is to go near sunset and sit on the bench...More

There are almost always events and activities going on. If there are not, it is still worth the walk out there because it is nothing less than gorgeous. It is the best place to go for morning runs.
