The beach is north of Brook's Street and extends north past Anita Street. Popular activities include body boarding, body surfing, and watching the surf from the observation deck when it gets good. Mostly older locals come to this beach and locate themselves to the south. A younger set of locals gathers close to the tower.
Hazardous and rip conditions are present during increased surf. There are rips in front and to the right of the tower. The whole stretch of Oak Street also has a rocky bottom with a rock reef extending out from Brook's Street. Usually the break will be about 90 yards from shore, but when the surf gets really big it will break off the outer reefs (300-500 yards off shore) south of Brook's Street and continue up the beach past the tower. Surfing is only allowed at Brook's Street and not at Oak Street Beach.
If you do visit this area please do not take, collect or disturb any of the marine life. The taking or collecting of rocks, shells, or marine life is prohibited. Fishing is not allowed at this beach.
