On our way to the Key west. Dropped by Sombrero Beach. You would think no one would dare be on the beach as it was so cold for a common Floridian . I was on my winter coat and bonnet. Northerners, by way of being in shorts basking in the sun with the cold wind chill is not out from... More

The weather was not very nice, so we were just sightseeing in Marathon. Came upon this beach. Pleasant surprise. Clean beach, good facilities, children playground equipment, small fishing pier AND a kayak launch area. Would have loved to been there when weather nicer.

Fine piece of Beach. Toilets, playground and tables/benches. Icecream Van, but nothing Else to eat or drink. Sea a bit rough when we where there, and water was brownish. Seaweed. Kid friendly. A lot of people. Not large but ok. Parking is free.

Visited here in the morning. Not sure of the tide conditions but there was a lot of seaweed. Not just in the water but on the beach as well. It was about one foot piled high and along the entire length of the beach Other wise it was a very nice beach. Clean rest room and changing rooms as well... More

Sombrero Beach is a small, public, beach on the Atlantic side of Marathon. It has parking, comfort stations, and a pier. Very nice beach, and dogs are allowed "on leash," too. We went twice while in Marathon. The rainy, cold, blustery, weather was the reason we didn't go everyday. I was lucky enough to go with friends who had their... More

LOVE Sombrero beach! Lots of free parking, two well-maintained bathroom facilities, water fountains and outdoor showers, playground for kids, volleyball courts. Beach is amazing - white sand, not too many shells or rocks in the water, palm trees right on the beach for shade, water is clear and shallow enough to touch the bottom even several yards out from the...

What the Keys lack in number of beaches they make up for with Sombrero Beach in terms of quality. There are plenty of ideal spots for swimming and sitting in the sun (or shade if that's what you need), as well as rocky little areas to explore tide pools and the creatures that live in them. The park includes a... More

We spent a day exploring the Keys, and we knew that part of it was going to be spent relaxing on a beach. We chose this beach based on the reviews, and it did not disappoint. It's two miles from the highway, so you don't hear any traffic. There is ample parking, clean bathrooms and picnic ramadas. Lots of beautiful... More
