The ocean waters on LGI are calm, clear, and shallow – perfect for children. The sand is soft underfoot and snorkeling for shells is fun. Water temperature depends on time of year, but swimming is a possibility most of the year. There are no steep drop-offs when you enter the water from the shore. The bottom is pure white sand and there is usually a sand bar 10-20 yards offshore which keeps the waves to a minimum. A relaxing stroll on the beach will provide hundreds of shells for the collector.
A 100 yards walk either way gets you to the beach or to the bay. Only takes 3 mins at a leisurely pace. The calm waters make kayaking an ideal activity.
