Green Bay Isthmus Beach is somewhat unique because it's a generally active beach, but it's not constantly overrun with crowds.

Both sides of the beach features clean calm water. However, the area to the north tends to be a little more populated than the south. Then again, if you do not like the view on one side, you can simply turn around and face the other.
Keep in mind that restrooms won't be found on-site, so those of you traveling with small children may want to consider another spot. You'll find the waters off-shore to be clear enough for snorkeling, so grab your equipment if you're looking to see what goes on beneath the surface.
