From East to West

Walk the beach at sunrise with your hot coffee in hand. Or watch the sunset from your beach chair, craft beer in hand. Vacation homes on or near the beach allow for maximum surf and sand time, and there are a variety of price points to suit your budget. Many West End homes have private dune walkovers, whereas East End homes might be a short walk to the beach but are closer to restaurants, bars, tours, and other popular attractions.

Bayfront or Canal Rentals

If you and your group need easy access to water sports — boating, fishing, kayaking — consider one of the many vacation rentals that front the bay or a canal. These have additional advantages: many locations have private pools; others overlook birding hotspots — all help focus your time on enjoying the outdoors.
