On Sundays, enjoy some brunch beats at Blue Streak restaurant from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Indulge in bottomless mimosas and weekend favorites like avocado toast and chicken and waffles, all while taking in panoramic ocean views.

Start your morning right at Loews’ new coffee shop, For Five Coffee Roasters. Get your morning brew just the way you like it, and take it with you for a sun-soaked stroll along the sand. The shop also is stocked with all the daily necessities, which are available to grab and go.


5 | Movie Madness 

Every Saturday at sunset, curl up by the pool to watch a cinematic classic with the Loews’ Dive-In Movies series. Kids will love snacking on munchies from the movie menu, including staples like popcorn and candy, as well as ice cream sandwiches, hot dogs and pretzels, all while enjoying favorite family-friendly films like E.T. and Pirates of the Caribbean.


Can’t make it for an overnight stay? No problem. On weekdays, non-guests can reserve a day pass to the pool area for $40. Or spend an evening cozying up with a beverage by one of the outdoor bonfire pits while listening to the soothing sound of the ocean waves. Open seating is available or make a reservation if you want to claim your hot spot in advance.
