West 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. On the pier side of the beach the sand is soft with minimal shells and pebbles mixed throughout; on the opposite side of the pier, the sand is coarser. The entry to the water is easy with the mild waves and gradual descent. People often fish off the pier and nearby rocks.
