Haulover Beach Park is a protected stretch of coastline sporting big-wave surf, well-sculpted sand dunes, and an infamous clothing-optional zone at the north end. In other words, its a great place to "hang out." Prudes who prefer to steer clear of peoples bits and pieces can stick to the non-nudist parts of the beach, the tennis courts, the nine-hole golf course, or the marina, where this Saturday, the park will throw a party.
The newly expanded marina is being reopened to the public to mark National Marina Day (one of the most obscure national days ever). There will a free bluegrass concert, a kite festival, diving and snorkeling, a Chinese dragon boat and dance show, kayak and canoe trips, a squirting fire boat, a kids zone with bounce houses and fishing lessons, and other fun stuff from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is free, but bring five bucks for parking.
