Made a mistake and thought I was reviewing Sunset Beach but put writeup under Howard Beach. See comments there. Loved this place.

A great little beach and park area, perfect for watching sunsets or just enjoying the area. Parking is free, and the park is not crowded. Also went to Fred Howard Park but found we enjoyed Sunset Beach Park more.

I honestly wasn't that impressed.. Although I wil say.. It had been raining most of the day and there was a lot of wash up. The birds were insane!!! I would love to go back after a gorgeous day bc you can see for miles and I'm sure I would have a much different opinion.. Having said that.. I'm gonna... More

Although I went to school in this area in the 50's, I had never visited this particular beach until about 5 years ago. I attended a class reunion there, and since then, have visited this quiet, beautiful beach every time I'm back in the area.It is located on west side of Tarpon Springs, you'll need a GPS to find it,...

We met the nicest families. The kids enjoyed paddle boarding from Tom's shop nearby. They must have played with 20 or more hermit crabs. From very large to tiny. They also got to experience a live horseshoe crab. They touched it, watched it move, and safely returned it to the sea. Fed the seagulls. All the local residents were friendly... More

A beautiful sea beach, close to Tampa, Florida. Walk on the sand with waves lapping at your feet; collect sea shells; or just laze under a beach umbrella available on hire.

Sunset Beach is a very small, secluded beach. It has boat access with a boat launch. This is a perfect place for watching the sunset with a cool drink. If you want a beach to swim and play with children, I suggest you visit Fred Howard Park down the road. If you're looking for a quiet, picnic area to share... More

There's no charge for this beach, but there is a small parking lot and one can park on the right and left side of road as you come in. There's a place to bring a boat or jet skis, play area for the kids; and picnic benches and tables under the trees. I have taken the most beautiful sunset photos... More

No better name then "Sunset" for this beach. Even if you can't spend the entire day here, it is worth the effort to be here for sunset. The view is breath-taking and different every evening. PRICELESS!

If you want to enjoy the sunset this is the place to do it. Lots of people do, so you would want to come a bit early to get parking. Not a large park, but very nice, closes after sunset. There is no fee to enter.
