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.
