Well worth the $3.00 parking fee to visit this beautiful beach. Not crowded with people, simply a wonderful place to enjoy nature.

Living in the UK you can only dream of the type of beaches like Stumps pass. I was determined to show my kids en route to Naples. After google directions sent us the wrong way we finally arrived, hot, sweaty and grumpy!! Within minutes of seeing a tortoise, changing into costumes and jumping into a sea almost like bath water...

Loved the nature trail! We saw tortoises, fiddler crabs and tons of different bird species. My son enjoyed snorkeling in Lemon Bay.

Saw an Osprey and Tortoise on the paths. The stumpy area is scenic for photos. The far end of the park is recommended for snorkeling but there really isn't anything to see accept around one of the stumps in a shallow calm area (some crabs a few colorful fish). The water is calm, clear and shallow but no coral or... More

Only beach I have been to that had ants. We were scared of where to place our chairs. Beach isn't too crowded but there is a $3 parking fee. The beach is shelly and the drop off into the water makes it hard to get out of the water because of the step up out of the ocean.

Solitude shared with my favorite shorebirds and a few other fortunate people. This beach has (sadly) dead trees in the water and along the shoreline. This adds perches for birds and great photo ops. The water was warm and colors of blues and greens with that magical aqua as the gentle waves kissed the shore. There is a 1.3 mile... More

We visit Manasota Key quite regularly and I never get tired of Stump Pass Beach. The water is gorgeous and there is so much to do...you have the trails in the park, there is the intercostal side and the the beach. As you stroll on the beach you see a variety of birds from Osprey to Pelicans, then there are... More

lovely beach and the sea was as warm as a bath, spent ages just walking and looking for shells and sharks teeth, then dipping in the sea to freshen up, it was a very hot day! Plenty of parking, rest rooms as well.
