At low tide, there’s plenty of room for every tourist and local to sunbathe. They sand is broad and flat, which is perfect for walking and biking. Plus, there are many public access entrances, with plenty of parking. Some beaches even offer free parking. Below is a list of the public beaches on the Island.
