Figure Eight Island features tennis courts, boat ramps and miles of white sand beaches. This is a great place to enjoy surfing, kayaking, windsurfing, canoeing, kite flying, biking, shelling, bird watching, crabbing, walking, and of course just plain doing nothing at all. Leave your stress at the guardhouse!
