A very unique destination. A quick ferry ride gets you to a separate paradise. Eat swim snorkel its all there. Live entertainment good food great for your whole family. Food service is slow, so it gives you time to check out other things.

You can snorkel right off the beach and see tons of fish. The beach is clean and beautiful. There is a restaurant on the beach but we didn't eat there so can't tell you if it is good

They charge for everything, but its difficult to see where the proceeds go. Chairs need a good power washing. The food shack looks shabby and like its fixing to fall down. You are unable to bring food or drinks over. If you're going to treat...More

Check Zillow but I suggest the East end of the Island if you can find a good deal.

Well, you can park at Strand Street, or take your chances parking on the side streets. The fort only allows 2 hour parking. We rented a car for 3 days, 2 nights of trying to find parking was a hazzle.
