Something for everyone. Lots of kid activities. Chinese food, seafood, Italian, just about anything. Just sit and relax, lots of people watching, very safe beach. But most of all, by far, the best popcorn in the world at Hobbs.

Great view of the water. Great place to spend an afternoon. Walk out on the pier and fish or watch people crabbing.
