“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

It's a beautiful beach that's not overpopulated with people. We had fun searching for sharks teeth and found plenty!

“Great beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

Actually writing this for Blind Pass Beach, just past Englewood Beach and before Manasota Beach - it's in Sarasota County so free parking. I have found more shark teeth on this beach than any other in the area. The only thing that isn't the best about this beach is the shelly bottom as you walk out into the water, but that's easy enough to get around. Great for sunset watching too. Just your basic beach where you park your car and head to the beach for a bit.

“Turquoise waters and cool breezes!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

I think this is the best beach I have ever been to! First of all, you get free parking directly across the street, then you have well maintained restrooms and changing areas, covered picnic areas and lots of seating. Never thought we would find a spot on July 4th, but was pleasantly surprised. The beach itself is breathtaking. Turquoise blue waters, just enough waves, and shells galore!! I was told there are plenty of sharks teeth as well, but I chose to relax and enjoy this time rather than hunting for treasures. I am almost afraid to post this for fear that this special spot with be overrun with people, but I felt compelled to give it it's due ! A real jewel....

“Good family beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

This was our local beach on our holiday and kept us entertained several mornings/afternoons/sunsets. The sea was generally clear and calm, the sand offered plenty of shells and fossilised shark teeth and showers and toilets were provided. No concessions so bring a cooler of food and drink from home!

“Beautiful~”

Very nice beach! Clean and the boardwalk that they have is spectacular! We stayed at Castaway condo's so it is just a hop, skip and jump to it!
