We visited Sunset Beach in January 2016. We were heading over to Orlando for a visit to Disney World, but really wanted our young daughters to experience the Gulf before we left the area. We looked for a small(er) beach to visit, and found Sunset. It was chilly that day and maybe that is why there were very few other... More

This beach has parking issues and boat launching which complicates it further, but the playground for the kids is a plus.

This is not a "beach" in the convention manner, but a good place to watch the sun set. Nice playground and a geocache, if you are into geocaching.

Parking was free, but you can get there early and have no problem. Nice restroom. Shaded areas and picnic space available. We enjoyed this beach very much

Perfect. If you want to see a breathtaking sunset, come here. They don't call it sunset beach for no reason! We live close by and can usually be found fishing or crabbing or beach combing on the weekends. But please be considerate and help keep our little gem clean! I constantly pick up after inconsiderate people leaving cigarette buts and... More

Wife and I found this by accident. What a pleasent suprise to find this little gem. It is a small beach/park with limited parking, a bath house and a small pavillion, plus a boat landing. The name is somewhat of a misnomer, there is a swimming area but this park is more like cicular island not a long shoreline type... More

This beach is one that is used by a lot of locals. If you are looking for excitement go to Clearwater. But if you want to relax and enjoy true Florida white sandy beaches..this is for you!
