Fodor's Review

A short bike- or shuttle-bus ride from town, Jetties Beach is popular with families because of its calm surf. It's also a good place to try out kayaks and sailboards. On shore it's a lively scene, with a playground and volleyball nets on the beach and adjacent public tennis courts. There is a boardwalk to the beach (special wheelchairs are available). You'll have a good view of passing ferries—and an even better one if you clamber out on the jetty itself. (Careful, it's

slippery.) Amenities : food and drink; lifeguards; parking; showers; toilets; water sports. Best for : swimming; windsurfing.
