I just moved to Tampa and saw this place on the map and I had to check it out. The water here is clear, sandbars about 20 feet out where you feel like you're on an island. Waves are calm, you can literally lay in the water. I have found large sand dollars here, also have seen a few rays... More

Ventured into this park to collect some sea shells. My children wanted to spend the day on the beach and collect some shells, so one of the locals suggested this beach. If your willing to spend the $8 to get in, its a a descent beach, but unlike the busy beaches this one does not get cleaned daily, hence why... More

Did not enjoy. We like walking on the beach and was unable to do it because of all the shells on the beach. Water was clear and warm. If the beach had no shells and stones all over, this beach would have been perfect.

Went on a weekday, great beach for collecting shells, pretty views. Must be very crowded on weekends. The Main Beach is plenty wide. Bring water shoes and you will have a great time. Stones only go out for about 20 ft and then it is the softest sand I've ever felt (sandbars are fun, too!). Natural Florida beach at it's... More

Although there is a designated swimming beach here, if you do not know the area, you will end up trying to get into the water over very sharp, large rocks. Very painfully. Once in the water, however, it is very clear and warm.

There are two trails, one through trees and the pelician trail that follows along the beach. Allow at least an hour an a half and take plenty of water! If you like turtles, there are plenty crawling around everywhere munching on the blades of grass. There are also plenty of ospreys on next and others flying around. If you are... More

Beach was extremely rocky. Sand was not soft and was filled with everything from trash, cigarette butts and shells. No bathroom facilities that I could find. And it cost $8 to get in. I coukd not find what all the hype was about. Very disappointed.
