If this sounds like you, booking accommodations within walking distance of a good beach can make your trip even more exciting. If you are looking forward to the beach more than anything, The Anchorage is the right spot for you. This lodging is set right along the water and sand, so vacationers can spend all of their time soaking up the sun if they want.
Obviously, since The Anchorage sits directly on Cemetery Beach, laying out in the sun is popular with guests staying at this property. The waters are calm for swimming and wading and this beach is usually active, populated by guests of nearby accommodations.
