Looking for a quiet, unspoiled beach holiday in the US

Beautiful, quiet sandy beaches on the east coast or gulf coast of the US for a holiday next summer? Cottages with hammocks are preferable to condos or hotels. Basically I'm looking for the exact opposite of places like Myrtle Beach. Proximity (as in an hour's drive or less) to a culturally interesting city like New Orleans or Charleston is a definite bonus.

Where to go for a relaxing beach vacation?

I need a vacation! I'm looking for a warm, beach-y place to relax for 5-6 days in February 2012. Pros: solitude, beautiful beaches, comfortable beds, massages, spas, great food, relaxation. Cons: crowds, kids, loud parties, lots of drunks. I will be leaving from Washington DC, so Caribbean and Central America recommendations would be great. [more inside]

If we don't pick a wedding location soon, I'm eloping in Vegas

We're getting married next June and want a beach wedding in Florida. We're looking in the general Cocoa Beach area and we're having a hard time picking the perfect beach. The wedding planner keeps trying to talk us into a beach we're not 100% in love with. We need help picking the perfect beach. Have you had a beach wedding in the Cocoa Beach area? Which beaches should we consider? We don't want something terribly crowded and touristy.

Any beaches with waves within 150 miles of DC?

I'm planning on driving from DC to Colonial Beach in Virginia to go to the beach. I went there once last summer and thought it was a nice beach and it's only about a two hour drive from downtown Washington. Are there any other decent beaches in the area (as in less than three hour drive from DC and beaches where you can swim)? [more inside]

What on Earth is this?

What is this? I've had it hanging on my wall for a year or two. It was found on the sand below the water line at the Fire Island National Seashore/Wilderness. It's lightweight and friable, like a sea creature. It's 24 cm (9.4 inches) long by 11 cm (4.3 inches) wide. 24 cm is 1.7 monkey skulls, if that helps.
