sit in your swim suit on the beach under a shaded roof and enjoy a variety of food from fish sandwiches to snacks and ice cream and chocolate covered bananas

As long as you have clear expectations, this is a neat place to visit. It's about the only "beach" in or near Spring Hill. It's the size of several city blocks in a circle. The water is very shallow (and consequently usually a little too warm for me), so it's a good place for kids to play in the water.... More

Great for families and children. It's clear and shallow. Kids enjoy looking for crabs and other sea creatures. It has playground, snack bar and restrooms. Best time to come is in evening about 6 pm. It is very busy on weekends and summer.

This little man made beach is nice for small children with a nice playground. They even have a small snack bar with dogs/burgers, etc. It's very popular and quite often is full, especially on the weekends. Many come here for the cool sunsets.

Great little spot in Hernando County. Yesterday was our first time there, but it won't be our last. The water is clear, and shallow, so it is ideal for younger kids. Watch out for sharp rocks over near the observation post, they are clearly marked, so that should not be a problem. Parking is $5 per car.

This park is just okay. Parking is $5. They have two machines to pay for parking, but bring your five dollars in cash since often the credit card feature is not working. The only food available on-site is a small food shack with your typical varieties of pizza, hot dogs, etc. There are, of course, bathrooms on site as well.... More

While it doesn't compare to Clearwater, it is an awesome little beach close to home. The beach is clean and the water is calm and clear, perfect for floating aroundon tubes and such. The water is waist deep far out and tons of dolphins swimming close to shore. Great little concession stand with very reasonable prices and good food, as... More

I saw someone post this is a "True Nature Coast Beach". That must be coming from a recent transplant to the area,. I beg everyone on this site to NOT judge Florida beaches by Pine Island. Don't get me wrong if you just want a place to hang out and get some sun for the day and not have to... More

Pine Island is small and fills up very fast on weekends, but keep trying. Our grandchildren thoroughly enjoyed several hours there last week when they spent their springbreak with us. Water is clear and shallow on one side and very safe for kids to explore. Beach is clean with picnic areas and grills, are also available on a first come... More
