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.

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

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!

Little beach that's worth a stop. White sand. Clear water. But too little and no parking! For additional parking, you can park on the west side across from the south end of the beach near the bridge and fishing bridges and walk across. Some smells might bug you too...The path is cool though.
