This is great for biking, running, walking - any way you want to enjoy it. We noticed a seal on the rocks near Walker's Point. Great family activity that is simple yet memory making.

What a great drive, very scenic! The rocky coast s beautiful and the drive was very enjoyable. There are places to pull over and take pictures. Most definitely worth the time to drive down and enjoy the views. St. Ann's church can be seen from the road and is a wonderful old stone church. The Bush compound can also be... More

Some of the most beautiful houses on the coast are here. The location is stunning, rugged coastline which goes on for miles. To continue beyond Ocean Avenue, to the north, is ust more beautiful scenery and coastline.

If you fancy a scenic walk of about 4 miles then follow this road. It gave marvellous views of the ocean and the beaches. You could also visit the small old church on route, St Ann's, which had a really good viewing point where they hold outdoor services. You get a great view of Walkers Point when you are on... More

Too many tourist shops but the art galleries are excellent. There are also some good gift shops worth exploring.

We drove quite a way on Ocean Avenue. It was quiet and scenic, and we stumbled across many great places to pull over and take pics. The next day I went for a peaceful run along this road.

From the Colony Resort to Walker's Point, it is approximately 1.1 miles. Yes you can drive it but it is a much more better walk. And from the corner of Ocean Avenue, at the mouth of the river, it is about a mile to Dock Square. That is a good walk as well, although the sidewalk gets a little narrow... More

Not a lot of shops, many aimed straight at tourists, but also quite a few more interesting places to browse. Nice ambience and very pretty.

It's always fun to see what some people can afford. We could see former President Bush's home from the road.
