“Great Family Vacation!”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

LOVE this little town! This is a wonderful little beach town. We rented a beautiful little oceanfront house (Comes A Time - through Century 21). It was great because everything was within walking distance. The town was quiet, just what we were looking for, mostly families and locals. Everyone we met were very friendly and helpful. The beach had bigger waves than other beaches we have visited so we could watch the surfers which was great. This is a very pet friendly area. There were lots of dogs on the beach but the beach was very clean. (Love it when people pick up after their pets.) Our little yorkie, Chicklet, loved her time on the beach and walking around town. We will definitely return to this town.

“Beautiful Beach”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

Lovely area! Hurricanes love it also.....don't buy property, erosion is taking the island away :( Go for vacation and rent a house or condo.

“Great Beach”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

My Family and I come down here all the way from NJ every year to this island. not a big beach which is nice I am not a fan of big walks across the hot sand to reach the water( Wildwood or anyother NJ beach that i have been to). Not a great place for food although there are a couple of good ones if you look for them. There is also a great bakery, the Key Lime Pies are to die for! also, there is a great fishmarket always nice and fresh. overall a nice island with nice beaches and a great alternative to the packed beaches of NJ

“Relaxing”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

Stayed in Surf City. It was very relaxing and a beautiful area. If you are looking to relax by the beach this is the best place. Not crowded, clean, very nice beach. Would definitely go back the next time family or friends want to have a group getaway!
