Stop for a slice of pizza, a sub or duck into the grocery store for a few beach snacks. You will probably run into a surfer or two as the beach is a popular surf spot with breaks to the right and left of the jetty. Bring your snorkel and dive gear as this beach has hidden treasures beneath its aquamarine seas.  A reef leads water adventurists to Queens Jewels, a Spanish shipwreck, with untold riches. In 2015, 350 gold coins valued at $4.5 million found in six feet off the shores of Wabasso Beach. Treasure hunt anyone?
