Head down to the fine white sands of Dawn Beach, a restful stretch of coastline. Stroll along the sugary shore soaking in the lazy atmosphere, or rent a lounge chair and umbrella and get to work on your vacation reading.

Put Dawn Beach and other Oyster Pond attractions into our Oyster Pond trip planner, and watch your holiday take shape.
