This is a wonderful beach for all sorts of activities. I have enjoyed many walks and bike rides there. It's even possible to drive your car on the hard sand. Great place to bird and people watch.

Amazing beach with good access. You can drive your car on for 10 dollars a day and park up where ever you like. Drive right to the end and stop by Ponce Inlet. It's just beautiful and a good surf spot too.

This beach has the finer lighter colored sand. Not sure if classified as white but much easier to walk on than the Outer Banks or similar beaches. You can drive on it at under 10mph no radios on in the driving cars supposedly. Several walk up restaurants and bars. Great place.

Escaped from the cold to visit friends. The beach was sparsely populated, clean and postcard beautiful. Plenty of eateries and shops in the vicinity, my host and I stopped for a beer. The area is less touristy than a lot of Florida.

Easy going area. Wide beaches, long waves and a nice age mix of people. Life guards on duty keeping beaches safe. For around $10 you can drive on the hard sand of the beach and pull up to many ocean front restaurants or park and soak up some sun or swim.

My Dad and his wife have lived here for a couple of years so I have visited often. It is cute small, friendly and slow paced. I'm happy to be. Arts and shopping are readily available.
