We rented kayaks to go through the mangroves across the bay. The beach was clean, people around the beach were friendly and respectful and you couldn't ask for better views. We went twice during our stay and have recommended it to others since we have returned home.

Great little beach that was across from our villa. I spent a few afternoons on the beach and despite its size, it never felt too crowded. Worth a visit!

This is a super accessible gem of a beach, open to the public. You can take your beach chair and lunch with a cooler of drinks and make an afternoon of it.

Plenty of parking and great access for swimming, kayaking (bring your own) or dog walking. The park has undergone major improvements with a dog park area, concrete paths, picnic tables, shelters, grills and a beach bath house. There are fountains to wash off the sand as you exit. There are no food amenities, so bring your own. No alcohol is... More

This is the perfect beach for a morning stroll or for a day of sunbathing. Not too crowded and gentle waves.

The county and town have done an excellent job of making the most of this small beach with a park. We enjoyed visiting. We will definitely return there when we visit the Keys.

We're so lucky we stopped by the beach just as the sun was about to set. The colours exploded as a backdrop to the palm trees as we walked down the sand and when we reached the end of the beach we were met with the view of an egret in profile against the red sky. Timing is everything! A... More

This beach is stunning, white sand and crystal clear waters. There is a volley ball park and toilets on site. It was my favourite beach out of all the keys.

Very few people, compared to Bahia Honda… go all the way down to the left (near the "No trespass" fence". We hung out there for a couple of hours and watched people kite-surfing, etc. Great place, 4 miles from Tranquility Bay, our base-camp!
