You may still hear locals refer to this as Algiers Beach, for the eponymous paddleboat that was beached here for many years. With a shallow slope and mid-island location, its waters are usually calm.
A bit of an effort to find means it is less populated than some of the other easily accessible beach accesses, which also means the shelling is good.
The skyline in this part of the island is low rises and homes. Hiking trails, restrooms, and picnic tables are available. Watch for (but don’t mess with) staked-off sea turtle nests in summer.
