The North Jetty is a great place to have a walk on the beach and see and feel the power of the ocean on a windy day....imagine kite flying would be spectacular too

Great place to visit year after year. Residents are all friendly and welcome your visit. Timing is crucial for clamming so check with fisheries and schedule early

Huge rocks make up this impressive jetty that you can walk out on. It is not without risk and you will want to have real good griping shoes on.
