One of the few beaches!

This beach is nice for families with children. The water is very clear, but don't expect to find many shells.

We went to this beautiful beach on 2 separate occasions. It is a wonderful family beach with a playground, beautiful white sand and very clean. Watch your kids though because it gets deep quick. The water is a beautiful Aqua marine blue. There are picnic tables, grills and electric outlets provided. Bring your chairs, a picnic lunch, sunscreen and enjoy... More

My boyfriend and I stopped at this beach on our drive down to Key West from Islamorada and all I can say is beautiful! We not only found an amazing beach but had a full set up with lush green lawns that held volleyball nets, playground and eating pavilions. And we also saw a number of dolphins swimming around! It...

So since the Keys don't really have any beach, I wasn't expecting much here. However, I was pleasantly surprised. There was plentiful parking and a great crowd at the beach.

Fantastic beach area, very well maintained. Bathrooms are nice and clean. Volleyball nets, grassy areas, lots of space to find your own little nook and convenient kayak launching area.

For the Keys this place was the best. The gulf side has the best "pretty " beaches. The Keys not so much .... except Sombrero. You can go kayaking right off the canal next to it and go through the mangroves what a riot. Just go even if you aren't into that you'll be glad you did

Great little beach with a playground. Sandy beaches are a rare find in the keys and this ones adorable.

There were dolphins swimming around in the area most of the afternoon. The beach is clean, the sand is soft. There is quite a lot of seaweed, but only in certain areas. Definitely recommended.

This is a really nice beach on the Atlantic side, with turquoise water. There is clean bathroom and exterior showers. There are a couple of covered picnic tables, beach volleyball court, and a nice playground. The end of the beach leads to a creek, and there is a dock for fishing. The water near the creek side is really calm,... More

Nice beach, bathroom facilities and changing house. Free access and parking was not an issue. Kept very clean, water and sand are clean. Small playground for the kids.
