We were staying in Marathon, so we stopped by to check it out one afternoon. It's a sandy beach, with clear water. But not much beach to sit on, so you're right on top of lots of other people. Boats zooming around everywhere. It was nice to jump in the ocean and cool off, but not somewhere we'd want to... More

Lovely and well-kept and easily accessible. The sea grass is a little irritating but, we are told, a necessary evil.

The facilities are spotless! Beach is one of the nicest in the Keys. An easy bike ride from Overseas Highway bike rental shop (just north of the Winn Dixie on the Gulf side. Lovely shaded tiki huts for picnicking too.

Nice sandy beach with plenty daddy areas. Fish jumping. Nice parking area, however fills up fast. Beautiful bathroom with water fountain. Handicap access. Watch out for Portugiese man of war. There was a lot if them in Feb. They look like blue condom blown up and floats on top of water.

This free beach has nice white sand and is large compared to most beaches in the Keys. It has a playground, pavilions, picnic tables, several restrooms, outdoor showers, and ample parking. There is an area to launch kayaks and sunfish but no dock for larger boats. The water is calm in a natural harbor. The actual beach is fairly narrow... More

This is a great little beach, especially if you have kids. Plenty of free parking, nice little playground, good bathroom facilities. Definitely worth a trip if you're in Marathon.

The beach though small is very scenic and clean. Clear turquoise blue waters and white sand. Basically there is nothing to dislike about this beach.

It's a nice beach however it is a natural beach, which means they don't remove the seaweed. Also look out for the Portuguese man o war. The water is a turquoise color. The beach is on the Atlantic side.
