The white sand beach was awesome. Great restaurants and we loved the gellato. Some of the restaurants are closed Monday - Thursday off season.

Wonderful places to eat, drink, and several dolphin cruises! You can't beat just walking around and enjoying that beautiful water while planning your next adventure at the Gulf!
