The resort sits on a fairly flat site, with slight inclines as the land merges with the water. There are paved parking areas, cement walkways, and extensive boardwalks through the property that provide easy access around the grounds. The crosswalk to the hotel has some flagstones on one side. Although beach wheelchairs can be rented upon request and based on availability, the direct hotel beach access has 4-5 stairs. However, there's an adjacent public beach that's accessible. The soundside lawn and docks are accessible for watching harbor view sunsets, the protected paddle cove, and views of the marsh and the Intracoastal Waterway. Sailing, kayaks, paddleboards and other waterbased activities take place here but aren't well set up for wheelchair users.
