'As the sun sets, there is no better place to relax and enjoy dinner than on their deck under the J.F.K. overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway. From Doc's super extensive menu, some of their specialties are a savory New York Strip and Ribeye surf n’ turf. Doc's has live music from local artists!... The best part? You might see a dolphin swimming by while you’re dining – don’t forget your camera!'

Welcome to the "Third Coast"... not the Atlantic, not the Pacific, but the Gulf Coast! And beautiful Whitecap Beach is just a stroll away from the condo to sand and surf. Or you can drive and park for free on the street nearby. When the beach access road is open (and it usually is), you are permitted to drive along the beach. Also you can park right on the beach, provided you have a Beach Parking Permit, which can be purchased for $12 at HEB or any on-island gas station. And the parking permit is good all season long. Enjoy! But remember the sunscreen and drinking water!
