I came here regularly with my family in the eighties and recall pristine beaches and an overall pleasant vibe. My husband and I made the mistake of renting a home on the north end of the island this year and were very disappointed with the current run down condition of the island. The beach is over run with loud bars and drunk people, the traffic is so heavy we couldn't leave our house and expect to return from a three mile drive in less than an hour. The environmental condition of the streets and the beach are also disappointing. The streets (at least on the north part of the island ) were littered with trash and an occasional spattering of vomit. We also found a significant amount trash, cigarettes and other items washing up on the beach. We won't be back.
