“Crowded sometimes but so serene”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

This was my first beach spot after moving to Florida a few weeks ago. The fee for parking caught me off guard, but it is so reasonable, why complain.

There are great facilities there (a bathroom, a picnic area, a basketball court, across the street dining/souvenirs/mart) as well as showers to wash the sand off yourself before leaving. There are also many options for sports (jet ski rentals, scooter rentals, four wheelers, boat rentals).

The parking lot is pretty big and well kept. The shells are quite plentiful. The location is convenient (right off of 776 pretty much). The beach is so beautiful, with palm trees and beautiful beachfront houses along the sand.

“Shark Teeth”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013 via mobile

This is the most commercialized beach on Manasota Key.

It has picnic areas, basketball courts and a wonderful playground for the kids.

We have enjoyed looking for shark's teeth and also have seen tons of dolphins.

It is definitely the busiest beach in the area. If you can't find a parking spot then just head north to Blind Pass beach where the parking is free.

“Popular Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Englewood Beach is the most visited beach on Manasota Key near Englewood, FL. On weekends you will find many locals there. It has nice white sand beaches, a boardwalk, flush toilets and access to restaurants and souvenir shops across from the parking lot. Be sure to pay for parking at the machine as they check regularly, especially during season.

“Nice gulf beach.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

Nice gulf beach with somewhat coarse sand and a lot of shells-though not the quality and quantity of Sanibel or Captiva. Bit of a drop off immediately and the area is loaded with shells. Very clean beaches, clear water and a quiet family atmosphere.
