Sombrero Beach was the third beach we visited in the Marathon area, and although it was great for lounging and walking, the warnings about Portuguese Man-O-Wars in the murky waters were enough to deter us from entering. This beach may be free, but I would suggest driving a little further south to Bahia Honda State Park if you want clear... More

Our group enjoyed Sombrero Beach. There are nice bathrooms, shaded areas with picnic tables, a playground for kids, and outdoor showers. The first day on the beach was great- with nice and clear water. The second day was windier- which brought up a lot of sea grass and sea weed. One day we rented kayaks from Wheels-2-go. They will deliver... More

Palm trees and white sand, warm water, great view, what else do you need. State parks are really well set up with restroom facilities and comfortable amenities.

Such a gorgeous beach! Lots of sand (which can be unusual around here)! Nice bathrooms. Outdoor showers. Shaded eating areas. Lots of free parking as well as free entrance to the beach. The only icky thing is the stuff growing on the bottom off the ocean that likes to tickle your legs. But swim over it and you'll be fine!

No signs to tell you that this beach even exists!! We went for the sunset, beach was almost deserted. Playground available for kids. Nice sandy beach. Decent facilities. Parking could be an issue if it's a busy time of day.

Clean and ample sandy beach, modern bathroom facilities, playground, plenty of free parking and volleyball courts. This place is a nice venue if you are looking for sand in the Fla Keys.

It was a great beach to spent a few hours. There were plenty of families and kids but there was also coupes and older folks looking to spent a few relaxing hours enjoying the palm trees, turquoise water and sandy beach.
