On the Beach's owners, Ken "The Sun Tan Man" and Captain Tony, provide all the gear needed for a relaxing and adventurous day at the beach. Behind the Royal Vista Resort, the beachside shop rents out maritime toys—Wave Runners, sailboats, kayaks, and boogie boards— to help tourists and locals to soak up sun, skim across waves, and lounge on the sand. The shop’s seasoned mariners—all with at least 25 years of experience—pull from their stores of knowledge and Old Bay seafood rub to devise custom lessons for sailors of any ability. Ken and Tony recognize that some people and all wicked witches might rather gaze at the water than be dampened by it. To cater to this landlubbing demographic, On the Beach rents out bicycles or shaded stays underneath beachside cabanas.

Atlantic’s fleet of charter boats ranges from a 17-foot long craft to a 44-foot luxury wave rider, Paradise One, and a 45-foot party boat accommodates up to 45 people with a full bar and stereo system perfect for playing sea shanties at top volume. Self-propelled single or tandem kayaks let their riders explore the world without breathing in noxious fumes, similar to surfing the Internet in a sterile room.
