Nice little place to get some nice photos of the family. It wasn't very busy and we used Janette (a local professional) to take some photos. She was reasonable and a great person. You can do it yourself though. There is no charge to use the beach.

Had an odor to the place. we think it was from the standing water as there has been a lot of rain storms through the area the past couple of days. Worth a stop & quick swim.

We stopped by this beach after reading a post on floridarambler.com, recommending it as one of the nicest beaches in the upper Key's. It was super peaceful and quiet, few people, lots of birds and fish, very soothing. There were some nice tables within the bushes on the beach to have picnics. The water was very shallow, not that good... More

There aren't really any beaches per Se in the Keys, however, this beach...if you can call it that is just...ok. Very...very minimal parking, so get there early, or the authorities will promptly ask you to leave. Nice gazebos, but they need to trim the overgrown mangroves. The beach...narrow....water is really murkey, and be careful, as you will sink down like... More

The first thing you must remember is that the Florida Keys is not known for its beaches. There are few opportunities between Key Largo and Key West to set your toes in the sand. Anne's Beach is one of them. It was once a very primitive spot on the ocean side of U.S. 1, but it has some amenities now... More

Beautiful beach on the Key west's way. White sands and clear water. Almost anybody at the beach. Free parking lot. take your beach umbrellas because there is no one renting it.

This was attempt #2 when back in July, we went it was packed during Independence Weekend. Parking limited. We drove early now w/ our dogs, the beach has these small closed in bays, so that's nice but sand is muddy, water is not crystal clear blue, it was smelly, dirty, and because there is lots of the sea weed grass...

Stopped at this beach and spent an hour or so. It's a beautiful location and there are several shallow sections that allow you to walk a long ways out in the water. It's also a fun place to watch windsurfers, too. There are also bathrooms and an outside shower to rinse off.

Small pocket of beach access with clear water that can be full of sea weed. Shallow enough for little kids to wade in. Parking is an issue. There are a couple of accesses you can check out to park at.

Stopped on the drive south while key hopping. We parked across the street and walked over. Just a pretty untouched sandy beach with clear water....going back tomorrow!
