The famous Intracoastal Waterway is lined with marinas and waterfront restaurants. Explore the beach, with its soft sands and inviting view of beachfront promenades lined with a variety of local shops and restaurants. Or explore the artificial reefs below the water line and get eye to eye with beautiful exotic fish and mesmerizing reef life.
