On the northern tip of East Beach, at the end of Bruce Drive, is Gould’s Inlet. Not primarily a beach destination, but rather a bird watching, fishing and ocean observation area. Here you can see the southern end of Sea Island, just across the river inlet, and observe many varieties of coastal birds. During your visit you will most likely encounter fishermen fishing off the boardwalk and along the beach, as well as paddleboarders off the distant sandbars catching some waves. This beach access location offers a shower, water hose, community water bowl for pets, dog bag station, benches and a fishing pier. Please note that there is limited parking. Goulds Inlet is considered a Wildlife Beach Area, and is home to a large population of shorebirds. Help conserve shorebirds by leaving dogs leashed and staying on the wet sand.

Notice: There are no lifeguards present at Gould's Inlet. Swimming is not advised.
