Great place to walk the beach. The break was a little rough for young children as it was a beach break. Easy access, food and shopping near by.

Very nice picturesque beach. Soft sand, lot of people but not crowded. Kinda windy during the day maybe not ideal beach to layout on but very nice to swim and ride on the waves. And probably most beautiful sunsets.

We started at the Hyatt and walked all the way to the Whaler’s Village for shopping and walked back. Enjoyed some Starbucks coffee about halfway through the walk. Lots of activities with each hotel providing some great landscaping and views.

Stayed just a short while to take in sun and waves. Small beach with minimal parking. Get there early during vacation season.

I have seen online other places that do go out later - into the afternoon. Everyone says' that the morning ones are the best due to the tradewinds in the afternoon.
