At the northernmost edge of Mallows Bay, the remains of what appear to be a Ferris vessel have created a landmass known as Grady’s Spit. This spit creates a welcome landing spot for the tired paddler to get out and stretch their legs on a small beach. Be careful, as the beach is usually covered at high tide with driftwood, as well as iron and wood pieces from the wreck under it. Swimming from the spit is not recommended because of the submerged debris in and around the beach areas.
