Coligny Beach Market

Right next to Coligny Beach Park is the Coligny Beach Market, a smaller division of Coligny Plaza, where a handful of shops and restaurants sit alongside the shores of Coligny, offering beachgoers a little more than sand and sun.  The best part about the Beach Market is that you don’t have to pack anything for the beach. If you forget something, it is all available right next to the beach.
