Great beach, not too crowded, free parking

Quiet beach nearby Oscar Scherer Statepark with free parking. Beach is clean, waves are fine, sunset is great. Best beach we visited during our trip.

I do prefer Nokomis Beach to most others. It is clean with beautiful sand and all of this with the ease of finding a parking space. On a wish list for beach lovers this beach has it all. You can even watch the boats going in and out of the inlet at the jetty.

Sharks, snakes and mosquitos. Stay away!!! Head north to Siesta or south to Manasota and leave our little beach just like it is!

I love going to the Nokomis Beach even though it is a bit of a drive from Sarasota. The terrain is flat and it is so easy to get from your car to the perfect beach spot. There are several covered sitting areas to watch the sunset. The bathrooms are large and clean (Note: there aren’t any lights in the... More

Listening to the drums and watching the crowd gathered to celebrate sunset on Nokimis Beach is one of the funkiest experiences you'll ever have. Between 50 and 70 drummers show up and delightfully drum to different rhythms. Don't have a drum -- bring a fry pan and wooden spoon or a plastic pail. Other people do. Starts about an hour... More

Love to go to this beach but it is next to impossible to find a place to stay here. Drum circle on Wednesday and Saturday nights at sunset is fun but not as good as last year!!! Where are the hula hoops??? Miss them. Beautiful, wide beach with great bathrooms and nice quiet places to sit, some nice shells and... More

Water gets a bit rough when the tide changes. But, this is a nice Florida beach. There is a long jetty for people to fish and plenty of beach to swim and if you like collecting shells, this is a great shelling beach. We were fortunate enough to see several dolphins and even a manatee on this trip to Nokomis... More

By far the best beach in the area. There are many others, but good parking, fun to people watch, awesome views. Also very easy to take a nice walk down to the jetty (where you can find food). And at night, on certain nights, they have at the drums playing as the sun goes down. A perfect time to bring... More
