Stroll along the uncrowded beach. Hear, see, and feel the ocean waves. Observe pelicans soaring in angled formation or plunging into the sea for fish.
Sometimes share the sand with blue herons or sandpipers. May to August look for mother sea turtle tracks as you explore the beach... July to October you may see baby turtles running to the ocean.
What a beautiful site, what a view, what a nice place to stay, and the ocean is your backyard!
