Water shoes are a must, especially for small children.

This is a perfect place to bring your kids to and make them spend all their energy running around the beach, jumping into water from inflatables or canoeing.

The water park has everything one might need – a small parking lot, grills, canoe rentals, inflatables for the kids to jump from. Bathrooms and showers are available across from the beach. There are no lifeguards, but the staff is very attentive and helpful.
