Ok, I am not a beach expert. Stump Pass is on the far southern end of Manasota Key. First, you need $3, exact change. Second, hope there is a parking place after you pay your fee. If you pass those hurdles, then you have a short walk to the beach or lighthouse. The beach has a finer and cleaner sand... More

So natural! Stump pass is like finding yourself on an unexplored little beach if you manage to be here out of season.It is beautiful! So much nature to enjoy! The first time I came here, we arrived by boat and there were a couple of young guys spear fishing on the bay side. It can get pretty crowded in season.

Nice quiet place to enjoy the beach away from the crowd. It is $3 to get in for the day. We enjoyed a nice walk on the beach.

The family and I have been coming to this area for over fifteen years and Stump Pass is one of the reasons. We just love the slowed down time schedule of this area. It is not crowded at all, even during spring break. It is busier but nothing like the name brand areas of Florida. There is a four story... More

Great facility. In the middle of the key. Bring your tools to collect sharks teeth. Sieves, Sand Shovel - check out the local hardware stores. You can walk the beach to collect the teeth. Or get into the water with your sand shovel and dig up a collection of sand and start sifting! Best Western Ambassador off 75 is a... More

Went here first time today. Will definitely go back. Walked full length of beach and almost missed a pair of manatees that were pointed out to me by another couple. Nice clean restrooms, picnic area and board walk.

This beach is great and you will always find sharks teeth. If you like a more quite place with great scenery this is the place.

Moved to this area about a year ago and have been here many times. Although you have to pay $3.00 for parking, it is well worth it for the more secluded beach and showering/bathroom facilities. Great place to swim and hunt for shark's teeth, have a nice picnic lunch and enjoy the sun & surf.

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...
