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

This little jewel of a park is situated at the entrance of the Weeki Wachee River as it flows into the shallow gulf waters. There is fishing from the north shore on the canal where the water is deep and sometimes you can spot manatees and dolphins. Lots of bird wildlife, a great park for the kids to play, a... More

Pine Island has beautiful white sandy beach areas, a great playground for kids, and a little snack shack to buy food. You can also bring a picnic lunch because there are lots of covered tables. Water is very shallow, but clear. Sunsets are gorgeous. You do have to pay for parking but it is a minimal cost for a nice... More

I liked the ease of getting there however you have to go early as space is limited. I liked there is a play ground for the children and showers, a small place to get food and drinks. Nice day out for children or just to read a book. Not much shaded areas so umbrella and sun screen is a must!!!

Drive to Clearwater, this beach is average at best. The water is very murky, sometimes it is near impossible to park, and you have to go out a mile to get into anything more than ankle deep water.
