The 26 mile long barrier island features an award winning state park (rated among the Top 10 in the nation). Thousands of visitors flock to this delightful oasis each year for water related activities and just plain mellowing out. The island's vacation rental homes enjoy outstanding occupancy (winter rates are extremely reasonable) and provide much of the visitor traffic for the area.
Those visitors can select from among nine outstanding restaurants and visit the more than two dozen shops, bait and tackle stores, grocery and a video store. The fishing is excellent from several land based locations. -coastline
