The milder water temperatures at Echo give it a big edge over the characteristically frigid ocean beaches on the island. The beach area is as long as it is wide, and slopes gently into the shallow water. There are plenty of shaded areas if you’d like to escape the sun or settle in with a book. Put on your swimsuit ahead of time.
