LOVED this beach. Great vibe and fantastic walkway and bike path. Would highly recommend hiring a bike and riding along the bike path taking in the scenery. Lifeguards are on duty on weekends making it a great day at the beach for the family.

The only negative was we didn't have enough time in the area! Loved the beach, water, sunsets, shops, etc. Will stay longer next time.

You can walk around without worrying about traffic and it feels pretty safe here, They have all sorts of boat expeditions, and they are always having specials so they are really pretty reasonable, we took the whale watching tour but I spent much of the...

We attended as a large group and did a harbour cruise for 2 hrs. It was well worth it. The view of the homes was incredible. So many boats too! Even saw a few seals lounging on the back of a couple boats!!
