You can't get too close to the beach.The lifeguards will let you know over the PA that you're too close.It might be better to access that spot from the shore.

Is that a rule/regulation or lifeguard discretion?

I think yes to all three.I think there are buoys well beyond the swimming area,you have to stay outside of them with a boat.

Been there done that many times. Its great from a boat.
You will need to go north beyond and outside the cove. There are buoy lines for swimmers. Stay to the outside .
Travel in at 5 miles per hour as your heading in to the shores, marine room. Be very careful their will be no shortage of paddle boarders and kayaks from the hotels.
At that area you can anchor, plenty calm and great area for kids.

Great to hear. Are the buoys easy to see? Anchor anywhere outside the buoys? How close to the caves/cove, 50 yards? Easy swim?

Yes to all. Key word is take it slow.

Ps dont have any rods in the holder. That will get the lifeguards there quickly too.

Enjoy your day
