The resort has its own private sandy beach with complimentary use of beach chairs and umbrellas.

A fine day could be spent combing the resort's beach and surrounding beaches for interesting specimens. Those favoring fresh-water relaxation will enjoy the resort's heated outdoor pool and spa tub, with chaise lounges on a surrounding sundeck.

Guests receive discounts at the semi-private Dunes Golf and Tennis Club, about one mile away. The back nine of the Dunes golf course is an Audubon-sanctioned wildlife preserve, where many species of native wildlife can be observed. The club also has seven Har-Tru tennis courts.
