Another beach in close proximity to Duval street is Simonton Beach. It is located at the north end of Simonton street which runs parallel to duval street. It is a small beach and has a boat launch for small boats. It looks out over the harbor and can be a good place to sit and watch boats. There is a small dock I see people fishing off of now and again, it would probably be a good spot to fish at night.
There are also bathrooms and changing rooms at the beach and some parking but the parking is very limited.
