We went for a walk on the beck one morning after we got coffee at Curley's. There was an abundance of wildlife and plants to see. I think this is the only real sand beach on Marathon.

There is a lot of seaweed / sea grass here so make sure you have water shoes unless you like surprises. Beautiful and it is FREE.

We went to this beach after reading about it on a blog post on floridarambler.com. It's a beautiful beach, water where you can swim (not so shallow as other beaches on the Key's) and has a nice family atmosphere to it. Free parking!!

Located at the end of Sombrero Beach Rd. In the heart of Marathon is a wonderful beach. Well maintained by the City of Marathon. Free and also handicapped parking. Picnic tables throughout the park area with places to grill, restrooms, children's play area, volleyball court and a pier to fish from. A few steps away is a wonderful beach area... More

A lovely beach, and open to the public. The washrooms are very clean and there is loads of parking. If you're thirsty, there is usually someone selling coco frio outside the gate.

One of the nicer white sand beaches we saw in the Keys with two bathhouses, outdoor showers and great picnic area with shelters. Also a playground and volleyball court.

The beach is great. The surrounding area of the beach is even better. Its tucked away from everything and everything looks brand new. Def check this place out if your in Marathon for a beach day!
