The Jetties Beach is fun to visit when you have kids. At Children’s Beach this year, we saw Sea Robins swimming for the first time. They were exquisitely beautiful!! But there are beautiful beaches all around the island and you can often spot seals happily swimming!

There is a large sandbar that makes playing in the water safer for young children.It also has a restaurant and small store!

Great for kids to play in the water without big waves, beautiful view of the jetties, surf shop and restaurant as well.

We traveled with young children and the sandbar @ Jetties Beach was ideal.

Perfect beach - large parking lot; easy access (no stairs/hills); warm, calm water; not too crowded. Lots of amenities: casual beach restaurant, changing rooms, kayak & other water sport rentals. Great beach for families with small kids.

Close by [Property ID 14760]. Watched fireworks from the deck of the restaurant. Reasonable prices. Boat rentals available. Loved the stand-up paddle board. Sailboats also available. Spectacular sunset.
