Can't say anything bad about the experience. Easy access, restaurant nearby. This is the place to go if you aren't staying on the beach. Fun!

Car park close to beach with easy flat access onto sand. Gets crowded in high season so go early. Restaurant at back of beach for lunch and drinks, great place to watch the sunset.

Water is still cold in the 70's in March take a few minutes to get used to the water. Not enough parking spaces but cars do get in and out. No restroom. Parking is across the street.

It is a short walk to the beach and there is plenty of room for everyone. The sand is white and the water is beautiful.

A great beach to spend the day! A snorkel and mask would have been a great idea. The water was like glass and it would've been fun to scan the bottom for shells. We saw pods of dolphins swimming of shore!

The South Marco Beach is definitely a beautiful beach. It is a little busier than Tigertail, but, easier to access. Go to this beach early in the morning. It is quiet and we found some great shells before others arrived. Parking is $8/day, but, at least the parking is a short walk to the beach.

Beautiful beach. Very wide and super clean. Plenty of shells to pick up. Plenty of room to throw frisbees or toss ball.

What a lovely beach this was for shelling and watching sunsets. Very clean, a little bit busier than Tigertail because it is smaller. There is a restaurant and resorts adjacent the beach.
