Fun, family-friendly, casual beach place that has fresh cake donuts with you-pick icings and toppings. I usually go for the maple bacon or key lime with iced house coffee. It can get pretty busy so don't be surprised if there is a wait.

Sightseeing
Public Beach Access This is my favorite beach. It's more secluded than the other beach accesses. The water is always beautiful and the sand is powder fine. There are tall majestic pines near the street if you need shade and plenty of room along the beach. The street parking is very limited so it's best to show up early or late in the day. Make sure you pay attention to the parking signs and keep all tires off the street. There are no public restrooms.
