The first time we visited Crescent Beach was in 2010. After that we have returned every year during summer vacation.It is a beautiful beach, clean with a very white sand that never gets hot. My children call it "the happy place". Every summer I offer them new things but they just choose to return. If you want a quiet beach... More

The beach was very nice and clean and not overly crowded. Lifeguards on duty was great. Showers and restrooms is an added plus. Convenient and free pubic parking with just a short walk to the beach area.

The sand here is one of a kind, it's almost like flour. I have never seen anything like it and it is great. The water is crystal clear and warm in temperature. It's a great beach to collect shells and have fun in the water. We would take a walk on the beach every morning and it was really a... More

Among one of the best beaches I have visited. The sand is like powder white sugar . If you are able, take in the Drum Circle on a Sunday Night you should try and take it in, it is for all ages. Unfortunately, when we went a storm was rolling in and it was quite windy and we had to... More

The sand here is just as pretty as Siesta Beach. It is mostly used by the condo residents that are staying there. Not much public parking.

We love this beach. We have travelled here often from the east coast of Florida. The water is crystal clear. You can see the bottom and search for sand dollars. The sand feels like flour and doesn't get hot under your feet even in July. Great family beach. Not too many waves. Great beach for walks too.

Crescent Beach was a nice beach with plenty of room and clear warm water. Avoid staying at Crescent Arms if in this area and looking for a place to stay!

We have been all over Florida, Mexico, and Caribbean but this beach is the best. This white powdered sugar sand is so soft, not hot, and at the water it packs firm for easy waking are riding a bike. Beautiful blue clear water and best sunsets ever. It checked all the boxes.

Beautiful corner of paradise!! Warm blue water in May and white sand. Many shells and Sea dollars to be collected at shore. Kids have fun watching tiny fishes and birds. Definitely recommended.
