A wonderful piece of real Gulf Coast Florida. We walked from Englewood beach to the very end Stump Pass. The transition from the two beaches is obvious and marked by two noticeable things, the end of any sort of building development and the sight of numerous black bare tree trunks. Walking through these stumps a few minutes later gave the... More

Riverside swimming on one side then walk right across in minutes to play in the ocean. Found lots of beautiful native plants, local wildlife and gorgeous shells. Didn't get to make it to the end of the park but the parts we saw were stunning. It's like one long, open beach that stretches farther than the eye can see. We... More

If you like to hike, there is no better beach walk than Stump Pass Beach State Park. At low tide the south end is accessible the entire way up the beach. If the tide is too high, there is a trail to cut over to that will get you to the south end. Beautiful native Florida with tons of birds,... More

Although the view and the ambiance were good that's about all I can say. This restaurant had been taunted to me as such fun with good food. There were only 2 other people there and our service was very poor. One waitress stayed on her cell phone when we tried to get her attention. Ignored us. Menu is limited. Nothing... More

My family and I have been here a few times and always come away with some goodies. We've found several types of shark teeth, some stingray barbs and fossilized bones. This year we learned it is where the sea turtles lay their eggs so there were several nest blocked off by fence. Would LOVE to see some baby turtles making... More

This was a beautiful place to find. I treasure of quiet hideaways along the golf coast! The park was pretty, as we traverse the trail all the way to the end and then made our way to the beach. The park ranger was very friendly. The beach scenery was beautiful with all of the old, dead trees scattered across the... More

Tight parking, but worth it! Unspoiled beaches, lots of wildlife. Clean water! As a longtime resident of our community, I can't say enough how wonderful it is to be within minutes of such an incredible park with lots of opportunities to find shark teeth and watch dolphins!

We enjoyed the beach here and plan on getting up and going for a hike on the 1.3 mile nature trail tomorrow. The beach is pristine and open and the water is great. There is no commercial entities so bring everything you need for the beach. It was a great place to hang out. The parking is limited and there... More

Stump Pass Beach is a popular destination. If you walk far enough you will see the many boats that venture through the pass to the Gulf from Lemon Bay. The water is pristine and the sand unspoiled. A perfect spot to get away from it all!

We have been traveling down to this area for years and by far Stumps Pass is our favorite beach. It is nice, quiet, clean and the water is great. If you walk down the beach, to the pass and back, and can find a lot of nice shells along the way. The bayside/intercostal is great for paddle boarding, kayaking, or... More
