Polo Beach

Waves at Polo BeachPolo Beach is a popular family beach at the Fairmont Resort. The shore has plenty of sand but rocky bottom. Good for swimming and some snorkeling. Afternoon winds bring plenty of waves for surfers and boogie boarders. The park area offers lots of shade, picnic tables and grills. The entire area is well maintained by the Fairmont Resort. This is a nice location for children and picnics with plenty of parking (although I have seen the parking lot full in the afternoon). You can also park on the side road and walk in. Rest rooms and showers are available.
