Wallis Sands is a wonderful family beach! It's not too large and is bordered on both sides by a barrier of rocks. It has a waist high concrete wall separating the beach and bath house and lots of nearly pristine sand. A smaller beach, there is ample parking and the bath house has a diverse park store. A large grassy area between the beach and the parking lot is perfect for frisbee, volleyball or wiffleball!
Weekends can be quite crowded here: arrive early to get a good spot and be sure to enjoy the view of the Isles of Shoals!
