  • Small and showing its age but a nice way to relax and enjoy the sea breeze. A small selection of foods and snacks as well as some stores with various souvenirs. It is in close proximity to the beach and is surrounded by areas to sit and enjoy food and walking trails around the boat yard and beach.
  • Love this shopping village. Across from the beach and dog friendly!! I will make this a frequent destination.
  • We like to visit this place to walk around and relax. Having fish and chips at Andrea's is one of our favorite treats - it's the best I've ever had. You can also rent boats to tour the harbor or take a harbor cruise. When we toured the harbor we saw dolphins, harbor seals, pelicans and many other sea birds.
  • Awesome ocean side shopping area. Various shops for small gifts, socks, jewelry, and souvenirs, along with great food like andria's seafood and the coastal cone ice cream parlor. Always come here when coming to the beach, and it makes for a great day.
  • The harbor is beautiful. We did paddle boating for only $20. The ice cream shop is yummy and the mermaid shop is so cute.
