This place rocks. Don’t judge a book by its cover, this small deli is delicious. Great spot to chill while you wait for a sandwich and stare at the blue water. It’s right on the beach. I would suggest walking to it, the parking spaces...More

We always visit Turtles for one of their huge sandwiches. Also perfect place to enjoy the beach. Perfect location between where we stay and town.

Bring cash, no credit cards accepted, this can be a problem with our cashless society, its very laid back.

Locals sent us to Turtles and we are glad they did. Excellent sandwiches, cold drinks, picnic beach seating on the beach. Kids can run around while the adults enjoy the view and food.
