Amenities: Beachfront vendors sell food, drinks, and other concessions while renting beach gear and watersports equipment.

This popular Mediterranean/Caribbean-inspired eatery serves up great lunches and dinners, and its deck - which overlooks Chalk Sound - includes a swimming pool.

Also walkable is Chalkies Sports Bar & Grill. Several other good establishments, including Bugaloos, Chinson’s Grill Shack, and Sharkbite Bar & Grill are but a short drive away.
