Emerald green water, clean beach, no driving on beach only leaving foot prints in the sand! Not crowded when I was here. You can see dolphins playing in the ocean.

Beach exceptionally clean every day. Lonnie who does beach chair rentals for Margaritaville Hotel is as good as finding 100 perfect sand dollars! He had chairs and umbrellas ready, kept up with changing winds, and a ready willingness to keep 8 women happy with their beach time

I visited this beach with my family for my baby girl birthday and we had a blast. The staff that was serving food wasn't that friendly but we really enjoyed this trip. We will return soon
