Sandy Beach is swimmable and can also have good waves. There are palm trees for shade and food is available as well as drinks.

As it's name says, this is a beach in Rincon with a sand bottom. Many beaches in Rincon are rocky but this one has a more forgiving sandy surface. Tambu tavern is on this beach: an informal restaurant with decent menu and cold beer!

Went at low tide to find sea glass. The parking lot was empty and lots of sea glass in the tide pool. Beautiful sunset!

There are a few different bars on Sandy Beach that rent chairs. I'm not sure on the umbrellas though. Tamboo seaside grill is one of them.
