Half way on our big bike trip
Popular with divers, this well-run ecofriendly resort features a beautiful sandy beach shaded by sea grape trees slung with hammocks. The dock is illuminated nightly, attracting stingrays, tarpon, and other creatures to entertain you on your after-dinner stroll. The motel-style rooms are simple but spotless, with handsome hardwood furnishings and granite-clad baths. The second-floor and end units (Nos. 118–121 and 219–221) offer the best views; 10 stylish junior suites include microwave, dual showerheads, leather recliners, iPod docks, and flat-screen TV/DVD. There's a day spa and library with video and board games for use in bad weather. Even the buffet-style food is surprisingly good. Fun theme weeks include Culinary, Arts, and Man Cave. The crowd tends to be older, with a handful of honeymooners and a few small meetings and vacationing families in summer.
