An alive and unique experience can be had. Walk the streets and enjoy eclectic nature of the community. Lots of restaurants to eat seafood. Usually crowded.

Great restaurants, from fast food seafood to sit down elegance. I have eaten in at least 12 restaurants on the island. Just restaurant after restaurant - from latin to asian to italian - seafood everyday you can think of.

A great place for a family style seafood dinner. We always go to Sammy's at the end and have always left happy and full.

It’s a long strap with a whole bunch of seafood restaurants some with water views. The beach isn’t that appealing so don’t go for that reason in my opinion. There are a lot of seagulls but the restaurants there have some good eats year around....More
