While you’re having all that fun, don’t forget to keep your eyes peeled for coastal nature in action.  With the wide variety of coastal birds soaring about, bird watching is obviously a popular (and rewarding) pastime.  And all you have to do is look around!  Watch for sea life, too, especially friendly dolphin during warmer months.
