I went there thinking it would be like the wharf in San Francisco. It was not even close. We both felt it was nothing more than a high class shopping district. Very nice but not our thing. We won’t be back.

Good news there are some unique shops here. Bad news, not much was very different or interesting. We were hopeful!

Couples day out. Walked around the Wharf and enjoyed checking out the shops. Since our last visit in 2015, it appears the added a ropes/zip line course (which was not open on this visit). Will go again for the ropes course on our next visit.

My friend and I spent about an hour walking around and visiting the stores, nothing to write home about.

Quaint area for shopping, coffee, and sights. Touristy for sure but there's sime great views and cute shops. Parking was a breeze in off season. Nice area to stop. They sell yachts here too!! 😁

The Wharf is a shopping area/hotel/marina with an amphitheater and other amenities. I was there in January, so not much going on. Still very pretty and we walked around and checked out the shops.Marina is beautiful.

Great shopping at the Wharf. High end clothing and unique shops. Also several good restaurants and bars. A must stop is Red or White Wine Bar. Very nice atmosphere and large selection of wine. Pick you a bottle off the shelf and pay a small...More

The Wharf is still under construction in some areas, but has lots to offer! I went to My Phone Repair and while my phone was being worked on I shopped in the surrounding shops.

The area has mostly Snowbirds from January to the middle of March. Restaurants offer many lunch and dinner specials. The spring break kids come to the beach starting in March.

There are areas to park your motor home beside the cinema as well as farther out from the shops, not a far walk at all. There are campgrounds very close to the Wharf both on and off the beach for overnight stays.
