On The Beach
The Peninsula offers a 28-mile, white sand beach playground that is so open and tranquil that you may feel as if you have the beach all to yourself for most of the year! Take a closer look, and you’ll see plenty of beachcombers, sand castle builders, kite flyers, Frisbee flyers, horseback and bicycle riders, runners, joggers and walkers, dogs playing fetch, families and friends gathered around a sunset campfire, as well as people playing volleyball, golf or horseshoes, picnicking, barbequing, sunbathing, clam digging, fishing, sunset-watching or just plain relaxing. The possibilities are truly endless!
