This is a beach with light-colored sand and turfs of sea oats growing along the dune line. Facilities include a boardwalk, covered picnic shelters, grills and volleyball. Don't miss Sunday evenings!”

Establishment
“From this beach you can take a path thru the trees and walk to the bayside or some spots cross directly over from the beachside to the bay waterway called Ski Alley. Ski Alley will have skiers and tubing going on most of the day. Boats will be lined along the shoreline with folks sitting on the boats or beach watching the action in the waterways. On the gulfside you may find great shelling. Walk to the tip of the island where there is a strong water current due to the gulf waters coming into the pass region and find some great shelling out there on the tip. Fisherman love the spot as well as big fish wait there for the small ones to wash down into the pass. ”
