Picnic Beach is approximately 700 feet long and located below Heisler Park. This beach is very popular with weekend groups of skin and scuba divers and families. Skimboarding not allowed. During large surf conditions and/or high tide the south rocks are closed. During low tides the south side of the beach has a flat rocky section that is covered with sea anemones that close up into shell camouflaged blobs to protect themselves when out of water. While it seems like a nice flat place to walk, it is virtually impossible to walk across without squashing the marine life or slipping and falling yourself. Try to stay on the dry rocks further back and just observe.
