If you're looking for a Florida Gulf beach destination that has all the basics, but lacks the big city congestion and crowds, Pine Island Park near Weeki Wachee is the place to go. Great beach with shallow water and playground for families with small children. Enjoy your own picnic lunch at several picnic tables with shelters, or buy simple food... More

Don't miss the Sunsets. Worth the $2 parking fee. Restrooms are clean. No lifeguard on duty. Great playground for the kids.

Been here in summer and had to leave as there were no parking spaces (the attendent won't let any people in if the lot is full. It's a small parking lot too). There is limited parking, houses surrounding man made beach that isn't very deep. I guess if you had little kids they could play on the playground. If you... More

A small hidden beach with beautiful views of the gulf! The water is shallow and you can walk out for awhile. Parking cost a couple bucks but well worth it. There is a playground, grills and covered shelters. Nice place to just sit and relax!

It cost a few bucks to park, but so worth it. Once parking is full, no one can get in. There's volleyball. Fishing, a pair, a nice Sandy beach. Shelter houses. And the food is great. Try the fried Grouper sandwich & you'll be hooked. The swimming is separate from the fishing. There's a playground for the kids, something for... More

A small beach, it can be hard to find a place to park on a weekend. The water is shallow & warmer then the wide open Gulf, it's more of a bay. Sometimes pods of dolphins play, there's a playground, grills & covered shelters, also an outdoor cafe with decent food but it's a little pricey.

We were in the Weeki Wachee area for the weekend but S wanted to "go to the beach". I cautioned her that all of Florida is not edged in white sands. We had an early appointment the next day in Crystal River so we did not want to drive down to Clearwater, Dunedin, or even Tarpon Springs. On a whim... More
