The boardwalk itself is beautiful. Great views of the ocean/beach and a dedicated bikepath. Unfortunately - folks don't pay attention to the bikes and stand or walk in the path. They should have made the bike path bigger. It's also not a great boardwalk as the restaurants/shops are a block off the beach. I think of Rehobeth, Ocean City MD... More

Boardwalk not as impressive as the Boardwalk in Ocean City, MD. Least activity from people to shops to restaurants. People watching not as good either! All the businesses in this area to be on a parallel Main Street. Nice large beach area. Very surprise. Expected more activity!

A well lit, 3 mile long concrete Boardwalk 27feet wide. Great walking or running if someone doesnt want to walk or run on the beach. There is also a biking path that runs adjacent to the boardwalk.

I can't believe how clean they keep the boardwalk. They are out all day watering and emptying the trash cans. I love how they have a separate paved trail for bicycle use!

Meticulously clean boardwalk and beach. Separate bicycle path adjacent. Seemed to be very safe even after dark.
