As in many areas around the country, supplies are low in our local grocery stores. Our stores struggle to stock the shelves as best as they can for our local community as well as our visiting guests, but most essentials are hard to find. We suggest purchasing as many items as you can in your local area before heading this way, and to shop our many other grocery stores than the big chain stores. There is also many WONDERFUL farmers markets on your way south as a great idea for produce. Many smaller stores provide butchers. Then there are many small beach stores and dollar stores for your beach items. You can help keep our small businesses thriving by shopping outside of the major chains!

Beach Chairs & Umbrellas: These are available for sale at any retail store and are fairly inexpensive. Most condos have a Beach Service set up on the beach ready for daily/weekly rentals. Or, these items can be delivered to any beach access point of your choice. We suggest renting these in advance to secure availability. Or, just find an empty set and an attendant will be with you shortly.
