Plumb Beach

East bound Belt Parkway, just east of Exit 9 Knapp Street

Calm waters and strong winds make the sand beach a favorite take off for windsurfers and kite boarders. Launching is recommended at higher tide as mud flats make the walk to water several hundred yards at low tide. A permit is required.

Caution: Do not disturb the horseshoe crabs in this prime breeding area. Challenging wind and tide conditions. Watch for glass on the beach.
