The entire coast of the island, no matter where you are, is beach. Hot sand, seagulls, rolling waves - you name it, it's there. There are docks nearby for the local fisherman and boats from the outside world.
The Starlight Observation Station is an intergalactic hub, where aliens are initiated into Earth culture and also bring their own into the mix. The Station operates as a science station, an interstellar entertainment conglomerate, and a part of the Academy for introducing alien newcomers. With teleportation between the Station and the Island, it's a hot spot for visitors going both ways!
