Fancy some freshly shucked oysters with panoramic views of the ocean? Waves on the Beach is an award-winning bar and restaurant right on the water. Take a seat on the sunny balcony or in front of the picture windows, and peruse the menu — seafood dominates but there are other choices, too. Whether you’re after a casual lunch or romantic dinner, you’ll love it here.

PARC also offers water parties for kids, where they can challenge their mates to an aquatic obstacle course.
