I traipse out here frequently with a chair, a ponytail holder and book. My only objective: chill for 1/2 an hour, watch the sunset, pack up my toys, head home with a lower blood pressure and a "happy that I live where I can see that anytime I want" kind of peace.

Sunset Beach Tarpon Springs is small and hidden from the bustle of larger area beaches. There are no souvenir stores or restaurants but there is a wide swatch of soft beach and clear Gulf water. It is a favorite spot for kiteboarders. Parking is limited but free. There are public restrooms, picnic benches and a gazebo. The City of Tarpon... More

Sunset Beach is so rightly named we had the most wonderful time this spring down there with taking photos with our grandsons . They loved photo shooting the sunsets. They are gorgeous and I see why the town comes into the park to watch the sun set....it's like a space ship landing ! I am so in love with Sunset... More

Sunset Beach is not a large area but it is clean and fun to visit. They do have ample parking, rest rooms and sometimes special events such as movies at night or concerts from local groups. This is a nice place to get away from the crowds and still enjoy a nice beach!

Been here many times; uneven ratio of locals/tourists at any given time. Place is really clean though. Couple of shady types from time to time-watched some guy trying to fish out his keys he claimed to have lost in a recycling container; looked like a pickpocket setup.
