Santa’s Beach House Village
Take the kids and go see Santa at his Beach House (aka Shipwreck Island Waterpark) where you’ll be kindly greeted by Mr. and Mrs. Claus’ “friends of the sea” (illuminated starfish, seahorses, turtles, dolphin, fish and crabs). See the wonderful lighting displays featuring elves, reindeer and other holiday favorites. Guests to Santa’s Beach House Village can enjoy family festivities such as making a holiday keepsake at the craft table, enjoying hot chocolate, indulging in holiday treats, and best of all, taking pictures with Santa… but hurry, there’s only two days left to visit Santa at his “beach house!” Christmas Under The Sea
Get lost admiring countless lights and animated displays at the 1,500-foot M.B. Miller County Pier as they provide a unique platform adorned with holiday light overlooking the Gulf of Mexico and beautiful beaches. Join our sea turtles and fish friends and meet festive dolphin families who decorate their home, under the sea, with tropical tunes playing.
