The views of the ocean and amazing properties along this road are worth the time driving it. We didn’t encounter a lot of traffic during our drive.

Beautiful drive either by car or bike. So much to look at, whether it's black sail boats, flying and dipping kites, or a rainbow sunset. A feast for the eyes.

Sweeping sea vistas, precious coves, and some of the most interesting and attractive homes you'll see anywhere. Not to mention Brenton Point is great for fishing and flying kites!

It's worth it to take a drive along the water, see some of the mansions and stop along the way to get out and completely take in the scenery. Relaxing, scenic drive on a nice day.

Our driver took us around on Ocean Drive and we were in awe of the beauty we saw. Such lovely beaches and homes. Sailboats were out as was a guy fishing. He caught a large fish but released it before I could get a picture.

Passing the mansions on Bellevue, you'll continue around the island to the rocky shores of Brenton Point State Park. Pull over where you first can and enjoy the ocean!
