Stayed in a rental house right on the beach. It was beautiful but quite empty (well it was March). Lots of shells, sand is mostly broken pieces of shells on the east coast, vs the white fine sand of the gulf side. It was a very nice small beach. On Sundays you'll see horses troting along the beach. and you can rent one to ride. You'll see seagulls, pelicans, sand pipers, a few dolphins and nice waves. Lovely.
