Growing up and living in northwest florida along the world's whitest beaches, as they say, maybe I have a pretty high expectation. Don't get me wrong, I suppose it is not a bad beach, but honestly I was a little disappointed. We got there around 1pm and found the small beach to be quite busy. We were hoping for some... More

Our family visits this beach every time we are in the Keys. It is either hit or miss. This time it was a hit. No seaweed and very clean. Again, its not always like that. Even though it was the fourth of July weekend, it wasn't very crowded. Just the usual amount of people. I would recommend this beach as... More

Of the beaches we visited, this was the best. BUT, this beach had such a stench the kids were afraid to get in the water. They did shoot a long fireworks show for the 4 th of July & had face painting, grilled food & kid activites throughout the day of the 4th.

Saw a diversity of fish at the southern point and in the turtle grass. Go early for better visibility.

I knew that going to the keys meant no great beaches so I was pleasently surprised when we got to Sombrero beach. It is public and free, next to a nice little park. Has trees that provide shade when you need it. The waters are calm and clean except for the usual algae. I really loved Sombrero beach

Visited this beach with kids from 5-15 and all had a great time. Parking is close, sand is white n super soft, water is clean, family environment, sea weed creates a barrier so kids are not tempted to wonder too far in the water, nice playground, wrap around walk path with cute sea animal designs stenciled in, will be back!!🌞🏊👙👓📻�

We visited Sombrero Beach twice. It was surprisingly crowded for a week day but not uncomfortable. Facilities were free and clean. Had a nice day.

We stopped at Sombrero Beach on our way back to Miami after a snorkeling excursion. We had just had a wonderful lunch and wanted to just "veg" before going back to Miami. We stopped, through down some blankets, took a nap and took a dip in the water. It is a small, quiet clean beach and it was very relaxing.... More

We were staying just down the road and came here most days for a few hours. The water was nice, a bit of seaweed but nothing overwhelming. Having a rocky area for the kids to explore was great, but make sure you have water shoes. If you go to the small pier early in the morning there are lots of... More
