“No Concessions”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

Used to have a great food vendor with great food with reasonable prices, they were friendly and had great stories. He was knowledgeable and informative of things to do around the county. Due to politics they are no longer there, so bring your own food and beverages. Went out there today July 4, 2013, there is no vendor out there.

“Fort Island Gulf Beach”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

Nice little beach for a short day trip. Not too crowded. However, when we went there were no life guards on duty, nor was there a refreshment stand available. Nine miles back into Crystal River if you did not bring it with you!

“This is not St Pete Beach”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

It is a local beach that underwhelms the tourist but fine for locals to cool off or enjoy a picnic. Right now concessions are in a state of flux due to changes in County contracting structures.

“Nice little beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

Fort island beach is a quite little beach at the end of what seems to be an unending road. But it's a good road! The beach is clean. The restrooms are clean. The boat ramp/dock is well cared for. The nature walkways are sturdy yet beautiful. The pier out over the water is a treat. There's always several fishermen there that will share their fish stories with me.
The water is clear and should be getting warmer and warmer. I always see schools of fish swimming about when I'm there.
I enjoy my time at Fort Island :)
