The Sands and Boardwalk in Port Royal

50. The Sands and Boardwalk in Port Royal

Looking for a quick beach getaway or boat ramp right here in town? The Sands in Port Royal is the perfect spot! Conveniently located at the southern tip of Port Royal, it has incredibly easy access. If you like, you can even drive right up to the beach and picnic right out of your car! Didn’t bring a lunch? Not a problem! Moondoggies Cafe is just down the road at 925 10th Street. They serve only the freshest seafood, steaks, and salads in a fun and casual environment. After lunch enjoy searching for and most likely finding a few sharks teeth, kite flying, or simply relax and soak in the sun. Next, take a light stroll down the accompanying boardwalk along Battery Creek. Look out over the vast waterway while taking in the warm coastal breeze and enjoying the wildlife. You will see dolphins playing, coastal birds wading and fishing along the water’s edge, and birds of prey flying above.  If fishing or photography is your thing, the boardwalk is a great option. Completely free and open to the public during daylight hours, the Sands is a family friendly beach and a favorite local spot.
