This is the place to go to get away from the crowded beaches of Clearwater. Pleanty of beach options and parking. Nice bathroom facilities. If you hike the nature trail, bring bug spray.

Lots of nice sandy areas on the beach. Great nature walk and nature visitors center. New walking and bike path through the park. Worth the $8/car load. We get the annual state park pass.

I love this beach. It’s not as crowded as Clearwater Beach. The small entrance fee per car may be the reason why but I think it’s worth every penny!
