Do

+Crow’s Nest

The property is huge and the beach bar is an excellent low key, yet sceney hang for a happy hour cocktail by the water. Come early to put your name in for dinner and to watch the sunset while you wait.  It’s going to be a while so come early. Like, before 6pm early. If you can’t get a table you can still enjoy bites. the ricotta is a staple.

+Wolffer Estate Vineyard

Perched atop a slight rise, the charming Wölffer Estate Wine Stand has become the place to be on Friday and Saturday nights and is a popular pitstop on the way to the beach or home to the city. Offering all Wölffer wines and ciders or for purchase to-go, the Wine Stand has a casual ambiance with a spectacular view of the vineyard and breathtaking sunsets. Savor the wines and watch the sun sink behind the vineyard.
