Swimming

Kids enjoy swimming in the shallow sandy end, however, parental supervision is a MUST as nearby there are very deep waters, cliffs and no life-guard on duty. All swimming and the whole beach area is clothing optional. Clothing is encouraged elsewhere.

What to Bring

•Wheeled wagon for toting kids
•Sunscreen (however we ask that people don’t wear sunscreen in the water as it leaves a lasting oily residue on the surface)
•Tight fitting swim trunks for kids that aren’t potty trained–no poop and if it can be helped no pee in the water!
•Tough pants for crawling kids (good for the rough grounds)

Parental Supervision

Plan to experience Sh’Bang with your kid! The dangers for unsupervised kids are extensive, to name a few: sharp rocks, steep cliffs, water, fire, derby-cars, and sharks.
