Crushed seashells line pathways throughout this charming collection of some 250 newer Cape Cod–style homes, more than half of which are available to rent and include the Beach Camp, a collection of modern and cozy cabins surrounding a shared fire pit. Other multiple-story homes can sleep up to 22 (and can cost up to $1,350 per night). Most are set around the walkable village, which has a restaurant and pub, playground, spa, small grocery store, wine bar, indoor pool
and hot tub, a few retail shops, and a pottery-painting studio. A bike-rental shop offers beach cruisers for exploring the town, its parks, and the natural environment for $5 per hour or $20 per day. Some homes also have their own hot tubs and bikes for guest use. A private trail and stairs give access to the beach.
