Just dont walk on any beach seaweed as it may have baby Portuguese-man-of-war jelly fish and irritate the kids if they contact it Also shuffle in the water to avoid stepping on a Guitar Fish somewhat related to a stingray. They lay on the sand and all you see are their eyes and an ouline of their 2 ft or... More

This beach is OK. It's nothing special really and is more of a residential beach. At least It looks that way. Parking was pretty easy and the sand was soft and fine.

Nice white sand. Large grassy areas and a playground for the kids. Restrooms and showers. Not much shade so bring an umbrella. Don't expect any surf. No good snorkeling from the beach.

Sombrero Beach is a county owned property Oceanside in Marathon Florida. It is part of a wonderful park with a few picnic areas and childrens play area. Plenty of parking available, and clean, well maintained restrooms as well. Well maintained overall.

There are no huge expanses of beach area in the keys because the coral reef keeps the sand from coming ashore however Sombrero beach is a great launching area for kyack launching. There are many trails through the mangroves leading off from the beech. It has a wonderful playground, bathhouse facilities walking trails and palm trees in the sand to... More

We don't have much in the way of sandy beaches in the Keys because we are on an ancient coral reef, but Sombrero is one of the best down here. It is clean and well maintained and has grassed areas along with sand beach, playground and facilities. It's also the site for the July 4th Marathon celebration and fireworks that... More

Definitely a really nice beach for everyone. Its not just the beach either, its a whole park with facilities and free parking. We had a great time. The water was cool and shallow. It was crowded though during the day but as the afternoon went on it emptied out a bit. Dogs are allowed off leash, but I wouldn't do... More

From the beach it was just a little paddle into the... More

Spent a wonderfully relaxing day at this undiscovered gem. Sandy beaches are rare as hen's teeth in the Keys; this was as nice a stretch of beach as I have ever seen outside of Key West. Very clean beach and pleasant amenities. Pavilions for picnicking, swings and jungle gym area for the little ones and outstanding landscaping. Plenty of parking... More
