We rented a house on the beach and had a wonderful time. The water is clean and the sand is white. The waves are fairly gentle on small toddlers and the people at the beach were mainly families.

My family and I decided to visit the Peter's Point entrance to the beach on July 22nd. This was the perfect time because the beach was almost empty. It was very hot so I suggest you bring chairs and a large umbrella or other shade for the day. There are picnic tables, an outside shower, and nice bathrooms but no... More

The island was great! The people are friendly. Lots of things to see and do. Restaurants and shopping within walking distance. Prices are very reasonable. We loved our stay and will be back. Only thing, take bottled water. The drinking water taste is a bit off. We loved the island!

Lifeguard visible. Many, many shells and friendly birds. A great place t let the... More

My wife and I have been coming here since 2004. We have lived here now for 6 years. What a wonderful, traditional, uncrowded Florida beach community. We love it. There are numerous public access points with parking along the city and county beaches. There are state parks to the south (Big and Little Talbot) along with Cumberland Island which is... More

Our children wanted to visit the beach, so I chose one we hadn't been too yet. I was impressed with the clean beach, ability to park on the beach, and the location in proximity to hotels and food. However, the sea was not as clear as I remember it as a child. After 25 years things do change. However, the... More

A nice place to relax. This is an excellent place for families and couples. Many places to eat, but make sure you have dinner early , most places close at 9 except for ice cream parlors. The actual beach is a bit rough but nice for a walk along the beach.
