“SW Surf”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

Good break on any deep water swell over 6 feet and can hold faces up to 7-8 feet. But, too deep on small swells, also sucks w/ strong on-shores, but what place doesn't?

“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

We went there on our boat. Views are great. Must stay in the channel markers as very shallow waters. Great boat trip.

“So beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

Don't miss this. It's at the end of the road, after Sanibel, but so worth the drive. Just a really beautiful spot that should not be missed.

“LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

Absolutely beautiful. We spent 10 gloriouse days at sanibel & captiva islands. It is picture perfect.
The first few days it was like being in the carribean & the last couple of days the waves resembled the atlantic side. Locals said;"storm was coming inn" but never did. Sunsets are amazing here.

“Great Shelling, especially after a storm.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

Wear your shoes....lots of shells. A fun place to check out for maximum shelling. Sometimes hard to find because if you blink, you'll miss the turnoff.
