On the Water in OCMD

  • Dive in the Grand Hotels Indoor and Outdoor Pools
    After a day of hitting the waves, relax poolside and enjoy a cold drink from the Blue Palama Pool Bar! Or mosey to one of our other on-site dining establishments to enjoy a deckside breeze or the air conditioning.
  • Go Fishing on the Pier
    Several of the piers in town allow fishing and do not require a fishing license, such as the 9th Street Fishing Pier. Bring your fishing pole and equipment to enjoy the salty air and breeze off the water!
