Not too crowded. Water and sand was great. It's lovely to just walk on the beach for hours, swim for a while or soak up the sun. We are planning on coming back.

We enjoyed walking the pier and seeing those fishing. While there someone caught a fish and then the fish was eaten by a shark so that only the had was left on the hook. Teens loved that action.

This is a great place to take the kids of any age. We enjoyed chatting with the fishermen and seeing their catch. The price to walk the pier is low and good for all day.

Breathtaking views of the Gulf. We return here very often to unwind and relax. The people are very nice, and the atmosphere very laid-back. We saw sharks, dolphins, jellyfish, a huge sea turtle and a ray.

There is a parking lot right by the sheriffs office. Not sure about the umbrellas and chairs.

Hello! We are arranging our first trip here and wanted to know if it were possible to bring food onto the beach in a cooler? Is having a small grill permitted on the beach as well? (Family is big on grilling and such) Also, is parking on certain beaches permitted or is everyone to park in one certain area? Thank you for your answers! Much appreciated
