Though the beach is still popular, the elegant splendor that once graced this seaside resort community barely shows through the paved-over streets, fast-food eateries and shopping centers.

Cute little beach town but it was so windy we couldnt stay outside for more than a few minutes. The sand was literally blowing sideways! Fun place to watch the surfers and get some great pics of the colorful beach houses.
