A little drive out of town but definitely worth the trip. You can sit outside and have a wonderful breakfast facing the ocean. Highly recommend this place

Part of this beach is private so you will need to map out the section and access. Very quiet but was windy the days we went with rough surf. Not amenities (bath house, etc) but pretty.

Wauwinet enjoys a privileged location, far away from town, facing the bay. Though the rooms are not large, they are charming and the staff are friendly and attentive.
