I have never seen the sunset from the gulf coast before. We were told it would be beautiful, but to see it for ourselves, we were overwhelmed. Absolutely gorgeous!!
Shhhhh. We locals prefer Sunset Beach to Fred Howard. It's smaller, quieter, and feels like Old Florida. It used to be a walking beach only a few years back, but now you can swim and do other water activities there.
We are there every Wed., Thurs., Fri., and Sun. at 9 a.m. and it is a beautiful venue. The view of the Gulf of Mexico is awesome and the wild birds with dolphins simply amazing.
In Tarpon Springs, this beach is roomy enough so there's available sand for children to dig; some shade; a small beach; it's free and there's a playground for children vacationing to play with other children as well as available and small boat launch.
This gem of a white-sand beach faces due west onto the Gulf of Mexico. Check the Tarpon Springs town schedule for free concerts on Thursday evenings in the gazebo. There's a boat launch, a small snack truck and covered shelters for picnics. Always kept very clean by Tarpon and occasionally, the palm trees are loaded with green and yellow parrots.... More
Sunset Beach is appropriately named. Many folks come to view the sunset. There is a nice beach with picnic tables and a small pavilion. Free concerts are held during the summer. Parking is free and a rest room is available. It is much smaller than Fred Howard Park (which can be seen from here). Overall a nice place to relax.
we stopped at this place to have a picnic after driving around for most of the morning. The beach is quite clean and is a great place to relax. The fact that parking is free is also an added bonus. I enjoyed taking pictures of the beach.
It is no wonder that this is called Sunset Beach. Some ratings have placed this location among the best in Florida to view the sun setting. My wife and I go here often to enjoy the view and relax.
