As many of our Ocean Reef Resorts guests know there is plenty of exercises to be had here swimming in pools, walking along the sugar white sand beach, trying your luck at body surfing in the glowing emerald toned gulf, or paddle boarding across the bay of one of the lovely exotic coastal dune lakes along Scenic 30A - but sometimes it’s just not enough!
