If you go swimming at the beach, watch out for jellyfish! Also, there aren't any lifeguards so don't go out too far and watch out for the undertow.
Also, don't go swimming at night, the current is too strong and I've heard there are sharks.
If you see any area at the beach with a rope around it and a sign telling you not to trespass, obey it. Don't try to sneak past it, because those areas are nesting grounds for piping plovers - a bird which is an endangered species. Having disturbances disrupts their environment and could affect their population even if all you do is walk too close (when they feel threatened, they sit perfectly still for hours to hide - this prevents them from searching for food or returning to their nests to sit on their eggs).
If you're planning on playing beach volleyball or any other sport on the beach, do it far away from the roped-off areas. My friends and I played beach volleyball too close to a nesting area, and the ball ended up in the ropes a few times (which meant that someone had to cross the rope to get it back).
If you like beach activities, this is a good spot to be. The beaches aren't crowded like Brackley, Cavendish, and other touristy ones. It's a good place for swimming,beach volleyball, soccer, etc. Just be careful not to trespass into the areas reserved for the piping plovers (endangered species).
Equipment: Volleyball net and ball, soccer ball, swimsuits, or whatever else you use for the beach sports you enjoy.
