Sandpoint City Beach
The crown jewel in Sandpoint’s fine parks system, City Beach is just adjacent to downtown with 6 acres of sandy beach, grassy lawns and developed recreation swimming, boating, tennis, volleyball, picnicking and more.
Two marinas – Sandpoint Marina and The Windbag – straddle City Beach public docks and offer additional boat-slip moorings for powerboats and sailboats respectively. Gas is available at Sandpoint Marina, which is located at the mouth of Sand Creek at The Old Power House building. The Windbag Marina, just north of the beach, caters to sailors and windsurfers with a rock jetty that that is also a great place to fish for bass.
The center of Sandpoint is only two blocks away across the bridge over Sand Creek where there are shops, inns, art galleries, the Panida Theater, Cedar Street Bridge and many fine restaurants.
