Such a awesome spot!! Dolphins playing!!

We were there by boat and beached it on a sand bar, you can actually get in the water and have dolphins swimming all around you, it was such an awesome place!!

This area of south west Florida, is off the beaten path. It is peaceful and beautiful. Stump Pass Beach is a natural beach with nature trails where one can see turtles, pelicans, cranes and storks. There is a 4$ charge to park. As there are only 30 spits it is uncrowded. The sunsets are amazing. It is really worthwhile to... More

The beach is excellent and has a sandbar! The problem is there is not much sand on the beach and lots of people. We found the tight quarters too confining and returned to Englewood Beach.

You have got to get here early to get a parking space, or wait! We read that they open at 8 am, we got there at 8 am, and there were already quite a few cars there. It's $3.00 to park. They have bathrooms, a shower, a vending machine. We walked part way in the soft sand trail down the... More

Great nature walk and wildlife. Beach is excellent...Parking lot is small and in season you must arrive early. Beautiful trail along Lemon Bay side. Watch for the gopher tortoise.....

Beautiful beach, and depending on the time of year, it can be quite empty...(think April, May) Nice beach, very clean. But bring your own snacks, there isn't anywhere walkable to buy lunch. Remember, you have to pay for parking.

This was a perfect little beach in Englewood Florida! We found so many sharks teeth. Beach was not over crowded and we found free parking. Breathtaking sunsets. We can't wait to return!!

We worked our way South from Venice Beach checking out the other options and landed here. After spending a few days with the multitudes on the other beaches it was really nice to find a 'secluded' beach to watch the sunset. A kayak fisherman, a couple beach fishermen and a handful of tourists and that was it. Very nice!

This is our favorite beach. It's such a nice walk down to Stump's Pass. More than just the sand and water, there is interesting bird life, and cool stumps -- thus, the name! There is a bit of a nature trail as well if you don't want to walk right on the beach.
