My wife and I live locally and stay away May through August. Then visitors taper off and we often walk on the beach during the fall and winter.

After a great dinner at the Colony Inn, my wife and I had a very romantic foggy walk along a clean well kept beach.

Gawk and drive, just stay on the highway. Plenty of houses and beaches. Rocky shoreline is less than inviting. Just drive on, don’t stop.

Really nice for fresh air and a stroll, if you like walking that is. It was quiet when we were there but I can imagine in the height of the season it would be very busy.

A wonderfully pretty town, immaculately kept. First class! Totally ruined by traffic and bus load after bus load of pensioner tourism. Could not move for too many people. Crazy prices too.. such a shame..

Beautiful, wide open, white sand beach. Fabulous for a stroll, or to take a beach chair and sit and enjoy the beautiful views. I would give it a 5 star rating if only the water was warm enough to wade in! But it is spectacular...More

Very limited parking. Expansive beach. Benches located at various locations along the sidewalk facing the ocean. Great for walking or just sitting and enjoying the ocean scene.

The beach is scenic,plenty of room to do some serious walking either on the sand or on the parallel sidewalk. Since this was after labor day dogs are allowed on the beach so be aware of that. The dogs are not a problem,they stay with...More
