This is a great area for families with kids in ages young to early teens. There's lots of crabbing, walking, playing around in the water. A nice area as an alternative to the beach.

Used this as the start of our beach walk (tide out). Nice spot although typically limited for facilities.

Paines Creek is a beautiful, peaceful place where you can sit and contemplate, be alone in your thoughts or watch and appreciate the natural wonders year round! It is my private sanctuary, I walk through the beach or on the flats depending on the time...More

The Grandkids love this place because there is always some water to play/swim in. However, parental supervision is advised as tides coming in/out can be strong for weaker smaller swimmers.

No but in peak season an ice cream truck is in parking lot. There are only 15 parking spaces but still try to go. Beautiful beach with tidal pools.
