Whether you call it by its historic name of Connolly Beach, its more common name of Timber Cove Beach or its proposed name of Beach at Beach Retreat, this is a nice beach that is practically in the middle of town. Restaurants are steps away, and water equipment rentals are available in summer. It may look to visitors as if the beach is for hotels patrons only, but it's open to the public too. There is a marina complete with a boat dock and fueling, and restrooms are available.
