My family and I travel quite a bit and we’ve been all over and visited numerous beaches, but we continue to come back to this area. The whole 30A scene in my opinion has the best beaches and the whole atmosphere is fantastic for families.

Our family have vacationed here the past 3 years & wouldn't dream of going any place else! Beaches are perfect and not overcrowded like they are just down the road. Quaint town area with lots of eating and shopping off the beaten path.
