East Wharf Beach is a small town beach with limited amenities. A fishing pier once used as a ship building location is perfect for stretching legs, fishing, or enjoying the view. The beach sand is soft with some shells and pebbles mixed throughout; near the water is a large concentration of crushed shells and pebbles which form bands from the tides. The entry to the water can be difficult with a somewhat steep drop-off and the accumulation of shells. There’s a small gazebo on site.
