This beach is mostly sand bottom (rocky at the northern end near Bird Rock) with shorebreak type surf which makes it very popular with swimmers, bodyboarders, and body surfers. Surfing is not permitted on Main Beach during the summer months. The surf can be large and dangerous with numerous rip currents and heavy shore break waves.


Popular activities at this beach are basketball (there are two courts at the north end), volleyball (there are several courts on the beach) and other sand activities. There is a boardwalk that runs the length of the beach so it is a nice place to take a walk or people watch. Shower and restroom facilities are provided on both ends of the beach. Since it is in the middle of the town, it is a short walk from the beach to the numerous restaurant and shopping areas that are downtown.


If you do visit this area please do not take, collect or disturb any of the marine life. The taking or collecting of rocks, shells, or marine life is prohibited. Fishing is not allowed at this beach.
