Take in the sun

The beach area stretches for miles and all is really good sand beach and depth is wide. The ocean current is not strong in this area, so swimming is very attractive.

Family fun in the Water

The town is catering for mostly families and prices area reasonable compared to other areas. It continues to grow due to the popularity, but still has southern charm.

Good Food and Fresh

You can take in a lot of variety of seafood that a lot is caught locally. Go beyond having a hamburger and enjoy the savory delights. Hazel's is a typical spot to try the seafood, and it is fresh.
