Park
“This is a favorite place to put in paddle boards and kayaks. Across the harbor from HarborWalk Village, this is a city park. Bōte paddle board company does free demos of all of their products with free pizza and drinks on Wednesday evenings during the season. Swimming areas are on the East Pass (west) side of the point. Good for snorkeling, but stay out of the main pass.”

Park
“This park is located across from the bay. There are picnic tables and a short nature walk area, where you can learn about and observe some native species. There is a shallow water fishing pier across from the park, where you can fish (with your license) or watch the locals fish with cast nets. And the sunrise and sunset is pretty fabulous from this spot too.”
