We did the beach day with the covered loungers, floats, kayak ride, and magic chair lift passes. The kids loved the water, looking for shells, building sandcastles, and paddling around in the water. My husband and daughter did the kayak excursion, which is behind the beach area on a small inlet or river. The zipliners cross right over where the kayaks are.
There was a stingray in the area, which the kids liked to look at.
The only complaint I have is that the swimming area is really difficult to enter or exit. There is a 3 foot drop from the beach to the swimming area, down a sandy bank. So for someone with knee or back problems, it was painful and difficult to enter. I did see another, more exclusive area, around one side with a zero entry swimming area. It would be nice if they did some grading on the more public beach to make it easier.
The shopping areas were clean and the prices very reasonable. And the staff at the beach were all very friendly and helpful. It's very secure - security was everywhere. Definitely a fun day out for the family.
