Whether toting elderly folks to the grocery store down the street or delivering a 15-person party to an airport on the other side of the state, Diplomat Airport Transportation, Inc. covers all conveyance needs with its fleet of taxis, limousines, and shuttles. Courteous on-call taxi drivers scoop up passengers 24 hours a day, while designated drivers transport bar-goers safely around town. Shuttles and mini buses also run all day and night by reservation, and can carry up to 15 people or 1 individual and 14 mannequins to any airport in Florida. For a glitzier ride, customers can reserve a luxurious limo—lined with fiber-optic lights, mirrored ceilings, and a stocked bar—or an executive sedan. Diplomat can also set up personal accounts for transporting elderly or handicapped patrons.
Clear Sunset Car Wash & Detail Center de-grimes dusty autos using a safe and effective combination of high-pressure water and soft-touch cloth wipers. The classic full-service wash treats rancid roadsters to a soft-cloth exterior scrubbing, followed by a spot-free rinse and dry. Once vehicular shells are thoroughly shined, the 10-point Personal Touch interior cleaning blasts away lingering dust and dirt from its dash, carpets, mats, door panels, windows, and hunting trophies. With the platinum exterior wash, horseless carriages will receive the added safety of a clear coat protectant, undercarriage wash, and triple-foam polish, as well as the total-body attention of a wheel cleaning and tire shine. Wrapping up the automotive spa package, a Simoniz double-bond teflon protection ensures long-lasting resistance to water spots and sticky cooking sprays, and once bathed, each car is towel-dried by hand to prevent any immediate streaking.

Hailing from Buenos Aires, instructor Javier Rochwarger and the crew at Sangha Space connect students to each other and the community through the art of movement. As the instructors lead classes, lively Latin rhythms, jazzy swing tunes, and the names of ancient yoga poses echo throughout the spacious dance hall, bouncing off the exposed beams on the vaulted ceilings and ricocheting into a welcoming fireplace. Visitors peering over the second-story balcony may spy Lori Coyle-Magen and her husband Eran Magen demonstrating the passionate steps of the Argentine tango that they've been perfecting since the night they met. Sangha's dance workshops and classes don’t require a partner, and regular social events let students practice new moves, make new friends, and wear down the dangerously sharp point of their new dancing heels.
In addition to other dance and cultural classes led by visiting teachers, yoga instructors Pamela and Emily stop by several times a week to conduct yoga sessions focused on proper movement and form for beginner or advanced practitioners. They supplement their practical knowledge of body mechanics with spiritual advice shared through metaphors connected to each yoga technique.

Helpful staffers arrange drop off and pickup of people-powered mounts for couples wishing for a different starting point or those looking to take in the sunset from another island vantage, such as atop the parapets of a newly built sand castle.
