You want to bring sandwiches to the beach, but you don’t want to spend all morning trying to remember who throws tantrums when you leave the crust on their bread. Instead, just make a pitstop at Pearl Street Market, a Beach Haven spot that has some of the best deli and seafood sandwiches on the island. You can go with a Greek chicken wrap or lobster roll, which is light on mayo and very heavy on lobster. Or if you want to get something that’ll keep you from eating a whole box of Cheez-Its at 3pm, try the roast beef melt or baseball-sized crab cake on brioche. There are also a bunch of tables out front in case you don’t want to deal with seagulls and runaway napkins while you eat.
