Summer: Salt water surf fishing off the beach is a great way to spend some time in search of the big catch. With no licensing required, it is also a free and easy way to catch your dinner. A great spot to fish and spend some time is Ferry Beach. Why not pack a picnic dinner, your poles and some towels and head out tonight. The longer days allow for time to dine al a fresco on Ferry Beach while enjoying the warm weather and sunset. The beach has miles of white sand and is the perfect spot to collect shells or just play in the water. So why not take the family cast your line, let the kids play and sit back and relax. The beach also has a trail system which loops around the beach area and brings you to the swamp where you will find the rare black gum tree. The trail system is a great place to walk your dog and after 5 pm dog owners are allowed to bring their dogs to run on the beach. This beach is the perfect spot to go any night of the week. After you are done at the beach be sure to stop in at Garside’s Ice Cream where the homemade ice cream has been churned out for over 50 years. I recommend either the black forest or the pistachio which by the way is made with real pistachios. So fish, picnic, swim, explore you can do it all on Ferry Beach!
