Small beach, but no crowds and close to parking. Great for kids, especially at low tide.

Jackknife Harbor Beach was great. We didn't have great weather but we were able to take the dogs there after 6 pm. They had so much fun running on the beach, swimming in the water, and running through the tall grassy area.

When not staying at home, this is always our go-to beach. We drive our boat, anchor there, and enjoy an afternoon of sunning and swimming.
