Great beach vacation spot!
Posted Aug 6, 2016
Just a quick walk across the street to the beach for all kinds of surf and sand pleasure. We enjoyed afternoon walks along the beach, a full day in the surf (boogie boards for us, but great surfing for those who brought their boards), and beautiful hotel grounds. Just a couple of minutes away is a large outlet mall with shops and a variety of affordable restaurants. Free on-demand movies saved us from the disappointment of a sold out showing at a local movie theater. Though at typically higher hotel food prices, the breakfast buffet was great (included all hot items cooked to order: omelettes, eggs,french toast, waffles, etc.). We took a less expensive room, but you can pay more for an ocean view - no balconies for sitting outside to enjoy the view from your room, but several benches on the grounds facing the beach if you do want to sit outside and enjoy the view without the super short walk across the street. To the north (right when facing the beach), there is a bench along the cliffside walkway from which to sit and enjoy the sunset over the ocean - the path down to the beach is just beyond the bench (no ramp and difficult for anyone who doesn't have full range of motion in their hips and knees, but perfectly manageable regardless of athleticism). To the south (left), the road goes down to a low point that is much more accessible (staffed beach lifeguard tower at this location).
