Comments I typed nearly this whole thing and it got wiped out . now shorter version. Divers Paradise apartments are a great place to stay clean comfortable, great prices. John Schwind owner, is a great resource and can guide you to tank rentals, car/ pick up rentals. we shop at local food stores and cook in apt kitchen. shore dive all over. Awesome diving. on the other side of the street from the water. we have stayed here about 40 times. just love it. uncrowded.

also Black Durgon Inn is a great place to stay it is on the water with a great house reef. (small wall). Outdoor kitchen, shared. we have stayed there a number of times also. in house tank rentals.
