Although it’s really only about 5½ miles long, this gorgeous strand of beach has flawless white sand and crystal blue waters – just as pretty as a postcard. It is lined with resorts and vacation properties, but the beach itself is public. The main public beach access point – just south of the Kimpton – has a big parking lot, a playground, beach volleyball and lounge chair rental, with beach bars and plenty of other diversions nearby. Crowded but fun.
