I think the beach area within the park is the prettiest stretch along 30A. No stairs to navigate; it’s a straight walk on the boardwalk and onto the powdery sand. Parking is ample, the restrooms are nice, and the dunes are gorgeous. There is a...More

What a lovely beach in a state park. So, no, it doesn't have chair rentals. But it's beautiful and about 1/100 as crowded as the other beaches on 30A that we visited. Definitely worth a visit!

No, there wasn't a swimming pool. The campsites are on a fresh water pond but there are signs that say "alligators" so we didn't swim but they had trails to the sandy edge and I am sure you can swim. We visited in February... More
