Once you enter the area where the concession stands are located you will need to go maybe 500-1000 yards down the beach to get to the best areas. Most of the beach is safe and suitable for snorkeling

The Victorian House Boutique Hotel is really nice and directly on the beach. It's not in the middle of town though. I prefer beach front. You can rent a car it's a 5 minute drive.
