Betty's Beach

Betty's Beach near Man­ypeaks, is named after Betty Jones, born circa 1919, who often visi­ted the area to go camp­ing and fish­ing with her family.

The beach is loca­ted on a small, pro­tec­ted bay, with a white sandy beach and natural granite rock form­ations. The views over­look­ing the ocean are quite pictur­esque and a pleas­ant place to relax and enjoy the scen­ery. The beach is suit­able for beach walk­ing, swimm­ing and fish­ing.

Ex­pect to catch Herr­ing, Whit­ing, Skippy, Salmon, Flathead, Silver Bream and occa­sion­ally, Sampson Fish. Best fish­ing is near the rock form­ations and the small island. Please take care and observe safety signs in the area.
