DIRECTIONS: Going south: Turn left at the end of the first (and only) pond on the left past Clarence Town. Go between the house and its garage and continue on! If you’re more the mileage type, it’s 2.8 miles from Dunmore to the turn to Watermelon. Heading north: It’s trickier as there are no really good land marks. You’ll go over a little crest on the QH, there will be two houses on the right, what appears to be a small lane and by the time you’re past the lane you’ll see the pond on the right. By the time you stop and say, “I missed it” you’ll be 100 yards too far. Not to worry, I still do it. See photos below. As for the road to the beach, the first part around the pond is sand. It will begin a slow rise and become paved to go over the small ridge. It will make a sharp right hand turn and in about 200' in the middle of the road will be a NASTY POTHOLE! In about 200', there will a sharp left hand turn, you’ll go over the crest, and the road will go back to sand. Very few people come here so you can park as you wish. Note that there is a lane to three houses at the extreme southern end of this beach. The houses were abandoned when last we visited (early 2016) so it’s probably ok to pull into the lane. And on the return, don’t forget that POTHOLE!
As for the beaches, what can I say that I haven’t said or indicated. Sand, sand, sand. And no one, no one, no one. Oh yes, there is a reef which does a good job of protecting this whole stretch. Although we didn’t swim or snorkel on either of our visits as both were late in the day and we were kind of tired and definitely for the second the winds were too ferocious, both should be good, particularly at the extreme southern end of Watermelon.
The road to the beach as it appears heading south on the QH. Heading north, you come over the crest, zip by the two houses, miss seing the entrance as the wall hides it, and then see a large pond on the right. That's your cue that you just missed the turn!
