I loved this beach it was out of way but not crowed at all. We rented the kayaks there, they were cheaper than in town and much nicer area to kayak.

Used my Senior National Park Pass to save half off admission. Fantastic beach and wonderful views of the l a key and mountains. Nice gradual slope on the beach for easy swimming. A fantastic beach day. Lots of kids and adults enjoying this fantastic spot.

Baldwin beach sounds very wonderful, but unfortunately we weren't prepared to pay cash upon entrance and missed out on going. They also don't allow dogs, which is a plus for a beach. Nothing worse than pet owners who don't pick up after their dogs. Hopefully...More

The park lady is a hoot, she was so charming. The beach allows no dogs or grills. There were Canadian geese swimming with the grandkids. We packed a picnic and had a great time. Cost $8.00 to get in.
