Lower Bedeque. Nice drive and pretty spot for picking up seashells and climbing lighthouse. Take mosquito spray. Village store in Bedeque (turnoff to Lower Bedeque) has great ice cream.

Very beautiful view - especially at sunset. If you have dinner at the restaurant right on the boardwalk, and sit on the patio, you can enjoy the view as you eat.
