This is your typical west coast Florida Beach. Warm sun, warm water but the sand was a bit tough to walk on with all the shells. Not the soft sand found on other beaches in the area. None-the-less, a nice beach overall. Parking reasonable, but can be tough during the peak seasons.

There are no public bathrooms here. The beach is small, but since there is barely any parking, that's enough space. It's clean and there is a restaurant there to get drinks, lunch, or dinner.

Get to the beach by 9:00 and you should be fine for getting one of the limited parking spots.The parking machine proved to be a challenge for many people, including ourselves, but we did get it figured out eventually. It's a very busy spot, but has good facilities. The sand is nice, although quite shelly and coarse. The water was... More
