Xanadu Beach

Fodor's Review

The old Xanadu Resort of Howard Hughes fame has been abandoned and is all but crumbling and even the surrounding buildings look depressed, but there is local talk that the day will come when the area will be restored and renovated. There are no longer amenities nor flocks of tourists on this beach. However, the mile-long stretch of sand is still serene and worth a walk at sunset, especially when cruise ships depart into the twilight. Amenities: parking (no fee). Best for: solitude; sunset; walking.
