Overall I was satisfied with our stay, however I must mention that the marina itself has no amenities to speak of or floating docks. If you're thinking of staying here be sure to check the weather especially the wind direction. If the wind is from the East or North East you might not want to visit. The marina is wide open to the bay facing east. Our first night was like sleeping in a washing machine, in fact the wave action was so severe that both dock cleats were torn out leaving my boat swing badly all night long. The marina crew was quick to correct this situation and in general were very helpful especially when we were leaving.
The area itself is terrific with a couple of good restaurants within a short walk. Water taxis make the Pines a regular stop making it very easy to hope from beach to beach if you wish to see more of the area.
I'm looking forward to coming back so long as the wind is S or SW!
