Always a pleasant stay at The Blue Dolphin Cottages. Rooms are bright and cheerful. Walk out of your door onto the sand. Chairs, umbrellas, and bikes/helmets available at no extra charge. Shelling is excellent!

We LOVE the Blue Dolphin! It is simple and not glitzy. It is very small and very quiet. The tropical garden that surrounds the winding path past the cottages is really lovely. You cannot be closer to the beach than this, and a really lovely...More
