The place to be to visit Lisa bar and restaurant for the best margarita and guacamole in the world and the best fresh oysters straight from the sea from the oyster men near the rocks for just a few dollars

Lots of action if you enjoy boats and sand walkers. Safe to swim, as lifeguard chair station is 50 ft from the beach.

You can't swim on this beach as it is too dangerous and only suitable for surfers. Some good restaurants though
