Amenities at Shady Beach include a park area, barbecue grills, and restrooms. Shady Beach is also a great place to enjoy a picnic with family and friends in the shaded picnic area.
There is a lifeguard on duty during the summer season. There are fees in place for nonresident parking at Shady Beach. You can purchase parking passes at the beach.
