The water is perfectly clear and super shallow during either tide, up to about 100 feet out from shore. And there is very little wake, if any at all. So, basically, it's a GREAT area for kids to play. It''s like a giant bathtub of clear, warm water. Little ones can swim, boogie board, or snorkel in the gentle water without fear of getting knocked over by unrelenting waves.
Grown ups can just lounge in the water in relax. Many people will literally set their beach chairs and umbrellas in the water and spend the afternoon in total relaxation.
