Located directly on the sand, Shephard’s Beach Resort has been a popular destination with partygoers for years. The property features the two-level, indoor-outdoor WAVE Nightclub and live music is performed almost nightly on a stage set against the backdrop of the Gulf of Mexico.
SALT Tequila Bar and Tap Room offers over 100 tequilas and 20 craft beers, or guests have options to imbibe alfresco with the poolside SOAK bar and Tiki Bar on the beach. The hotel also features an interactive dining experience at Ocean Flame, where cooks prepare international dishes in front of diners.
During the daylight hours, beach chairs and umbrellas are available for a fee; lounge chairs and shaded areas are free of charge on the pool deck. Guests can rent Jet Skis, kayaks, scooters, bicycles and mini coupes on site. The property also has a fitness center and laundry room.
All rooms have patios or balconies, refrigerators, microwaves and free Wi-Fi; suites include kitchenettes. Children under 17 stay free when traveling with parents, however, those looking for a quieter stay should request an Island View Room away from the nightlife noise.
