Nine miles of soft sand beaches greet anyone willing to take the short stroll down to and over the famous boardwalk.

And when you've worked up a sufficient appetite, you can enjoy one of the many restaurants, cafes, and bars that line the strip. Unsurprisingly, given the area's long maritime history, seafood is a particular local specialty. Crabs, clams, and your favorite variety of fish are all here - cooked to perfection!
