I went to kayak, whiskey creek was low tide and so I ended up dragging my kayak most of the way so that was lame. But the reason I'm posting is when I was getting out a naked guy masturbating tried to assault me, I threatened him with my paddle and he jumped into the creek but not before several... More

A really nice beach, not very crowded at all. There were bathroom facilities (didn't use) and I only wish I had discovered this sooner! This beach had plenty of parking and had a small entrance fee.

In the days of segregation this was the "negro beach", when I was growing up. It's a blessing now because it might have saved this beach from development. Rent a canoe and paddle into the mangrove area. Always great WHERE SANDALS, if you forget you will wish you hadn't because the Australian pines leave little surprises plus sandburs. Enjoy a... More

very clean restrooms...a fee to enter, but much less than feeding the meters at Dania Beach (which is right next to it) if you plan to stay for any length of time....Purchasing an annual state park permit is a good deal if you go to state parks often no kites allowed in some areas people do come to fish off...

Good place to do what review title implies. For 6 bucks all day you have access to the beach which goes the length of the park and also a fishing jetty. Also has numerous bathrooms, picnic tables with grilles and seating. Should be a good place for a family or friends outing. Saw several rangers so safety shouldn't be a... More

While a little out of the way, this beach is a local favorite and rapidly becoming a tourist one as well. Great parking, bathrooms, grilling and shade trees. There are quieter areas as well. And yes, on a Saturday afternoon, wonderful watching the huge cruise ships leaving port. Listen for the cowbells from the condos across the channel as the... More
