Take in Some Local Activities

Rocky Point is full of things to do and see, and this time of year is perfect for enjoying them. You will find the pristine beaches wide open and inviting. You can take a quiet stroll or enjoy a day at the beach relaxing. Go on a sunset cruise, where you can float along, enjoying some dinner, and of course, the views. Take a day and get pampered at any number of local spas. Who doesn’t love a good massage or a soothing facial? And don’t miss a bit of golf. The area courses will be nearly empty, so you can enjoy a round or two surrounded by the stunning scenery.
