A fair amount of people visit this area, simply in the hopes of running into some famous people, as this truly is a getaway for the rich and famous! When it comes to fun things to do in the area, one of the major attractions is the beautiful beaches, which gaze down into the blue Atlantic Ocean.
While you might be under the impression that this area of the North Coast has cold water, during the height of the summer, the water temperatures creep up into the seventies and the water and the beach are very comfortable. One of the biggest attractions of this area is the vast amount of top notch golf courses that are in the area, including Maidstone Golf Course, which is located in the city and has some amazing golfing, tennis and fine dining as well.
