Despite its multimillion-dollar homes, the vibe is relaxed in this beach paradise that's teeming with singles. The athletically inclined will feel at home -- bikers and runners flaunt their toned bodies along the beachfront Strand. If you're looking for a playful opportunity to get physical with the opposite sex, join a game of coed beach volleyball -- a local preoccupation -- or score more than just a touchdown during a game of beach flag football. When the game breaks up, continue the good times at one of the many bars or gelato shops on Pier Avenue.
