We did not know what to expect but were pleasantly surprised. It offered a nice hiking trail with plants identified and many types of wildlife and bird to observe ranging from gopher turtles to black skimmers. There are facilities as well as 3 parking lots. The beach area closest to the first parking lot is the most crowded. The beaches... More

Great beach to go and have plenty of space to lay out your things. Great for fishing down at the pass.

This is a lovely white sand beach with plenty of parking. It does require a quite a lot of walking to get to the beach. The beach is huge and peaceful!

Beautiful beach, free if visiting after 6pm. The sunset was breathtaking. Only drawback is no shade during the daytime.
