Something for everyone. Party crowd hangs outside, couples and families can eat inside. Good views here and a nice beach. A bit tough to find this place, but it's worth the trouble.

The Beachcomber is a fun, loud restaurant. It's extremely low key with picnic chairs and paper plates. The food is yummy along with the alcoholic drinks. The bonus is the beach right next to it with amazing views.

What a gem! Beautiful white sand, free of rocks and broken shells. Parking is on an elevated perch overlooking the ocean which makes for spectacular views. That said, it is a steep decline (and incline) onto the beach on a man made sand path. Parking...More
