This quiet and surprisingly scenic paddle is a good get-away from the noise and bustle of the city, particularly on weeknights. The tall bluffs north of Bradford Beach are still wooded for the most part, making this a pleasant stretch of shoreline. There is no real destination here, though the prettier shoreline doesn’t start until you’re about a half-mile north of the launch site. Paddle as long as you like and return. Local paddlers have had to negotiate with the county parks to get permission to use this beach, and Bradford is one of the few where they have agreed to let kayakers launch.
