It is close to town, life guards, next to a restaurant. Water is sheltered and shallow with sand bars on ocean side and jetty phone side. Bottom inside bar is covered with gravel, broken shells. Saw lots of families with young kids

We've spent many a summer here at Jetties. Now there is a great restaurant open the end of the week with a good menu including oysters on the half shell. They have a special price list from 3 to 5.
