Great place for a picnic. Sandwiches are available at Soto's Market, Sebastian's, or a new market/cafe just across the highway.

I enjoy sitting by the shore...looking for shells, watching the tourists, and listening to the crashing waves. The world is beautiful!

We always walk to Leffingwell Landing along the boardwalk from our hotel. It has a large grassy area with picnic tables right along the ocean. Nice sunset views

When we were visiting during Thanksgiving week, there weren't many visitors, and the vistas were outstanding. Lovely place to visit, with easy access and a short trail.
