Little Bay

Very few people make the trek to Little Bay, which means those that due are likely to find themselves very much alone. This beach is great for swimming, snorkeling, and sunning on the sand.

Set on less than an acre of land between two rocky headland, Little Bay is a true beauty. The waters can be rough in the winter, so swimmers should do so with caution.

Because so few people go to Little Bay, there are no facilities here -- this includes trash cans.
