Just south of Fortunes Rocks is Granite Point boasting several private coves consisting of sandy beaches. These beaches are perfect for total privacy and also for small children as the waters are calmer in these inlets.
Walking is the preferred method to get to these beaches. There are no lifeguards on duty. At the far end of Granite Point Road lies Timber Point and Timber Point Island.
After a successful fundraising project this area has been included in the Little River Division of the Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge. Refuge staff will work to build a public trail this summer and a small portion of the trail is open to foot traffic, from sunrise to sunset.
Parking is limited and will be clearly marked. Many of the homes flank Little River which is great for birding and kayaking.
You can paddle two miles to the end of the river or head out to Goose Rocks Beach into the open ocean.
