This is a great place to come and just relax. Great homes and condos available for rent on and across from the beach. Downtown area is great for dining and strolling. Laid back kind of place. Several places to view the sunset. Good tours available on land and sea. Nice museum and art galleries too. Something for everyone.

Ocean views, riverside and harbour views, river cruises and great eateries wherever you turn. You could not wish for a better place to unwind. The people were generous, kind and helpful, wherever we went. A great place to spend a vacation.

Beach was beautiful. It was a very wide beach. Not crowded. Lots of shells. It was also quiet. Families and retirees.

The people of this quaint historic village have done (and continue to do) a great job in restoration and preservation. Like other farsighted costal towns, you will not notice utility poles and lines criss-crossing the scenic village. The merchants and residents we met were very friendly and helpful, and even though we live in Florida we thought we were elsewhere.

The first island in Florida coming South on I-95. This is the birthplace of the shrimping industry and still a fleet of shrimp boats. A place of history and beauty, from civil war Fort Clinch State Park to the beach along the Atlantic, something for everyone. Our home for the last 30 years.

We were right across the street from our hotel. Easy access to the beach., This is a fantastic beach to enjoy. We hope to return to this location again next year.

The beach is well maintained and the life guards really bring their A-game. For my taste, it wasn't crowded and even if you get there late in the morning, you can still find a nice spot all to yourself.
