Would you recommend Sandoway Discovery Center?

Sandoway has great atmosphere ! The gardens, though small, are an integral part of the Sandoway House. Where else can you garden while breathing in the ocean air? I've been in this garden for almost a year now and I have enjoyed every weeding moment :)

Sandaway House is a local treasure across from the beach. The visitors are usually tourists or local student groups interested in the historic house, the fish, turtles, snakes, vast sea shell collection, or the daily shark feeding. The staff and volunteers are friendly. Each day brings a new nugget of knowledge, a new friend made, or a rewarding experience.
