*Average:    2.03
Very shallow for a long, long way out (3-8ft). Mostly all cobble stones with no reef to speak of. Heavy surf makes this a popular surf spot. Not a good place to bring a beginner both because of the surf and the lack of reef life. This beach is also called Radiation Bay because of the nuclear power plant.
