About South Beach - Katama: South Beach is one of the most popular beaches on the Island. It's a free and public beach located in the southern, Katama area of Edgartown and facing the Atlantic Ocean. It is a barrier beach, which means surf on one side and a calm protected pond on the other. The surf can be fairly rough, which is fun for body surfing, but it's not great swimming for young kids.
