Discover Beautiful Local Beaches
Around this time of year things are warming up, and you can easily enjoy a day at the beach, even if the water is a bit chilly for swimming. South Beach offers lovely scenery as well as a collection of local restaurants to dine at, such as The Salty Dog Café. One of the most well-known spots in town is the Coligny Beach Park, where you can walk, bike, and lay out on the beach. Even if you’re not daring enough for a swim, you can have an Easter picnic on the beach and enjoy the breezy coastal weather. All over the island you’ll find beach access points, allowing you to live your best beach life as often as possible!
Explore Harbour Town
Harbour Town is a quaint shopping and dining complex in a private community right on the water, offering sights like a classic white and red striped lighthouse, and other imagery that evokes that classic Eastern seaboard feel. You pay a small entrance fee to park your car, but after that you have access to a selection of highly rated restaurants and outdoor cafes that are perfect for an Easter brunch. Beyond the tasty culinary options, you’ll find lots of local boutique shopping, where you can pick up new home décor, custom crafts, locally made goods, unique art galleries, and jewelry shops. It’s a picture-perfect spot for a lovely afternoon out, whether it’s Easter or not!
Traverse the Island by Bicycle
