DescriptionHenrys Beach is the point of land separating the Pond from the Gut. This area was traditionally owned by the Roche's who built fishing stages here after marriage into the Nash family. The land was also used to dry fish during the salt cod fishery. Henrys Beach is still used to haul up boats and tend to fishing gear.
