Always pleasant, often fun. Features a nice long Government Wharf off Walker Hook Road. This is one of the island’s best beaches at low summer tides. Walk out along sandy mud flats to the sand bar to the left of the dock. You’ll find a variety of sea life including sea stars, kelp crabs, moon-snails, clams and more. Tread carefully please; these are the only LIVE sand-dollar beds on the island. Sand dollars dwell under the dock, to the left of the dock, and to the right.Walk off to the right and you’ll find a rockier shore with tidal pools that are home to sea anemones, chitons, hermit crabs, rock crabs, and more. Watch out for those sand dollars! (The live ones are the black ones.)
