Peter S. from Hamilton:”A shout out to families looking for  a safe clean beach for children with a large wooden pirate boat to play on, swings and a water slide.  Cottages are very clean with utilities, t.v. and bedding included.  Boats can be rented for enjoyable  rides around the islands and also  many good fishing spots. Life jackets available in many sizes as are free kayaks to paddle about in.  Our three families have enjoyed many summers there.  Give it a try – its a great place to vacation.”
