This is a great beach for kids. It's on the south side so blocks some of the north winds and no seagrass! Shallow, calm water edge with real sand for the kids to play in. Overheard they imported it from the Bahamas. There is a playground for the kids that is Inbetween the parking lot and beach. Not over crowded... More

We stopped here on a Friday night on our way driving down the Keys to watch the sunset and it wasn't crowded and was a beautiful spot to sit and relax while the sun was going down. They also have a park with play gyms and volleyball courts.

Sombrero beach is a beautiful, clean and well kept beach area. Its not huge but has a wonderful ocean view. There are so many beautiful homes surrounding and on the way to this beach. If in or near Sombrero beach it is a pretty nice place to take your family for the day.

Small beach but provides many areas of picnic tables, playground, volleyball, or just walking in the park area or in the water. Outdoor foot shower area and clean restrooms. Palm tree shaded areas and pier to watch the sea life.

If you are in the Marathon area of the Florida Keys, you have to go to Sombrero Beach. A beautiful stretch of sandy beach, with excellent parking, changing and toilet facilities. An absolutely lovely beach.

Perfect morning! Stopped to grab coffee and a muffin, then headed right out to Sombrero Beach. What a great spot. Take a walk, take some pictures, take some time to enjoy this small piece of heaven in Marathon.

This is a great easy access beach that is dog friendly. There are ample clean restrooms, outside showers, and most important lots of white sand

There are not too many beaches in the Keys. I would have given this an "excellent" rating as it once was but due to the high amount of tourist's there is limited personal space. Great picnic areas and bathrooms on site. Launch area for kayaks. Be careful of the jelly fish if the signs are up and please please please... More

Good for a beach in the keys - the water was a bit cloudy. The park was clean and had showers to rinse off before getting back into the car.
