I think either way you go, it'll be great!
It is hot in August, (especially compared to the NW United States). I doubt you will need long sleeves or pants. You will usually have a breeze normally in the evening and sunburned bodies will feel cooler than normal.
Even though it won't be "chilly", I do think there is something magical about a bonfire on the beach no matter what time of year. And Kissing Fish does a great bonfire! The other upside is that the water will be lovely that time of year if you want to put your feet in. The other great thing about Grace Bay is that there isn't a lot of "light pollution" on the beach, you can really see the stars and enjoy! I love the idea of Smores!
