Just by luck, my girlfriend and I started walking down the beach on the gulf side of the park. After about 20 minutes we found ourselves along the watersedge, as we sometimes had to climb around fallen trees. KEEP GOING! We walked till we were off the the gulf side and on the Lemon Bay side. We continued till we... More

Beautiful, clean beach with nice facilities. Lots of shells! Pull your boat into a slip on the bay and walk over the hill to paradise. Blue, clear, beautiful water.

My sister and I visited the park one day of our vacation. Nice walking path, the ranger we talked to was very helpful. Beautiful location, wonder white sugar sand, good shelling.

It really doesn't get better than this for a Gulf Beach. The park costs $3 to park on your honor. There are bike racks, bathrooms, and picnic tables here. You can also launch your kayak from a couple places. The beach is very nice, and heading south you will get to Stump Pass, which is the south end of Manasota... More

Nice clean state park with great paths for hiking. Walked the beach to the southernmost point and then walked the path on the return. Great gopher tortoise area and beautiful views.

Great beach, lots of shark teeth. The trail is hot and muggy, we enjoyed walking the beach better. If you walk all the way down to where lemon bay meets the ocean there is a really nice area with calm clear water. Take drinks and picnic and plan on a long walk, it's worth it. Or you can rent a...

Pick a time of day when the temperature is comfortable for a walk along the Intercoastal Waterway (of Lemon Bay) leading to Stump Pass where it connects to the Gulf of Mexico. Unspoiled nature at its best! Bring 3 dollars for parking. The hours are 8am to sundown.
