There are ponds and rivers that meander through much of the property. This section surrounds the ocean front restaurant, Solana.
This is between the turtle pond and the river around Solana.
The recent beach project was a major success and worked out exactly as they planned. Even after two nor’westers the beach is much larger than before they deposited the extra sand. There is room for three rows of lounge chairs and then some. They are currently at 100% occupancy and there is more than enough beach to comfortably accommodate their guests.
More shots of their beautiful pool area.
