  • Mother's beach, so called because there is no surf, has many pluses. Besides sunbathing, swimming, and a view of the marina, there is play equipment for youngsters, volleyball courts, and an extensive picnic and barbeque area under cover. There are also seasonal kayak rentals. The beach can be viewed live via webcam at watchthewater.org/beach.cfm?bid=38
