Further south, the sandy beach continues with shallow water and a sandy bottom. Swing sets dot the beach and, of course, kids (large and small) have to stop and try out each one! Family-donated benches--note the plaques on the seat backs--are conveniently placed for resting, sunset viewing, star gazing and just plain sitting. Washroom and change room facilities are located half-way between the two. There are no beach shelters along the Southampton shoreline, so remember to slather on the sunscreen several times during the day, wear a hat and tote an umbrella to the beach.
