Sand City

Photo by Joe PauleyJust south of Eaton’s Neck is an area named West Beach, though locals refer to it as Sand City.   It’s a thin beach just off Sand City Island and south of Hobart Beach and Price Bend at the northwest entrance to Northport Bay.

Boaters from Huntington and Northport enjoy visiting Sand City, as the water drops off quickly, enabling boats to come quite close to the beach. It is a nice place to swim, relax, and take in the sights of Northport Bay (the curious can carefully explore the ruins of a long-closed sand mining facility).

There are no facilities or amenities here, but should you want a cold drink or a bite to eat, it’s a short trip to Huntington and Northport Harbors.
