We parked at Stump Park State Park. Parking is somewhat limited. Walked the beach to the end of the island about 1.3 miles. Very cool. Walked back on the path and saw a sea turtle. Nice afternoon.

My favourite place in this area. We enjoyed the nature trail and loved exploring the beach and looking for fossilized shark's teeth. I find it peaceful and not too crowded and very much enjoy the natural feel of the beach.

We happened upon this beach from Manasota Key beach, beautiful in its own right. There is a 1.3 mike nature trail at the park that winds through mangrove, plants and grasses I don't know, with numerous views of osprey and other birds. It stops at the end of the key, and there are sometimes manatees and dolphins near the point.... More

This is a terrific beach, but we enjoy watching the sunsets here. It's remote feel adds a lot to the sunset experience.Take a walk or slip into one of the little pull-offs along Manasota Beach road and enjoy the view.

We were really thrilled to find this place. Parking is limited is the only setback. Cost is $3 per carload. Can take beach and eventually take trail. Trail is 1.3 miles one way and has great views all the way. Took pictures of beautiful birds and plants. At the end of the trail, walk on a beautiful island. Just a... More

We wanted to catch the sunset and Englewood Beach was packed. It was nice to have a picnic table for our fast food dinner and then an outside shower to rinse our feet off after the pretty sunset. There is nice parking. A ranger was driving and walking around checking cars and trash. Make sure you have dollar bills to... More

This is my favorite state park in Englewood, the trail down to the pass is about a mile and a half but it was so worth it the old trees at the end are magical and like nothing I have ever seen before !

Great place to go to the beach and then walk a beautiful trail walk, have a place to launch kayaks, jet skis etc. During the holiday it did seem to be very busy but when I went before in August it was very quiet. Bathrooms are available too.
