Great beach but has been somewhat inhospitable because of the red tide and fish kill but this weekend the red tide let up and it wasn’t bad. Water is still browned than normal.

This beach has free parking and it's very nice. If it weren't for the red tide messing up the southern Gulf beaches this year, I'd be there a lot more often!

We didn't want to pay at Englewood Beach so we drove down the beautiful gulf road to this quaint beach. It was late in the day and parking was free and easy, just one or two people were there and we had it to ourselves....More

Had an amazing day at Blind Pass Beach! Found an amazing amount of sand dollars in the ocean. Just make sure to put them back in the ocean!

A beautiful stretch of beach loaded with shells and shark teeth. We will definitely be back!! Beautiful shaded walk to the shore right off the parking lot. Great spot to watch the sunset.

Our favorite spot on the gulf! Even with a tropical storm brewing, it provided a much needed break. Shark teeth and beautiful shells abound.

we visited yesterday, 6-12-18 and the beach had dead fish all along the shore. Smelled horrible from the dead fish. We are hoping to go back in about a week to see if they are gone. It is otherwise a beautiful beach.

Free car park across the road from the beach, as others have said it’s easier to drop people & beach equipment off next to the restrooms then find a parking space as it’s a large car park. Long fairly narrow beach can be very busy...More

Lighting is scarce, but nobody ever closes the beach. Fish all night long!
