The southern end of this picturesque beach in the Fort Pierce Inlet State Rec. Park is flanked by a long rock jetty, which can produce lengthy wedgy rights from the jetty side-wash. Consistent right and left peaks to the north help diffuse the inevitable crowd and an outer reef provides distraction on bigger swells. Due to the Bahamian islands, S groundswell is usually blocked, but a good NE or even an E swell will get the place firing on all tides. The jetty on the south side of the inlet doesn’t have anything for surfers, but it’s a popular windsurfing spot.
The waves, crowds, and sharks are all super consistent. State Rec. Park charges apply. “We will fight them on the beaches,” applies to old locals who frequented these sands during the U.S. Army training for the D-Day landings.
