Within walking distance along the shore from the Holiday Inn Resort we were staying at. We had dinner at Rockin' Tacos and a treat at Pino Gelato. Many were playing volleyball, walking along the beach, sharing a picnic, etc.

This place has a fantastic view, access to the loveliest beach and water anywhere, and several restaurants and shops. It is quite small, though.

This is a small Boardwalk area. There are a few cute shops, and a few restaurants and a great place to play for kids (playground), a beach volleyball court, and of course- lots of beach! Great little area!
