One of my favorite beaches in Florida

A wide, clean and fun beach. Water is usually clear and shallow for quite a long way from the shore.

When we went there the third week in July, the beach and water were smelly and dirty. I would not go in the water. It was very disappointing. I had no where to get cool when the temperatures were in the 90s. We were there for a week and all week long it was the same.

Beach is clean, quiet, sand is soft, strolls on the beach at night, searching for shells, listening to music from restaurants on the other side of the peer!

Rented a house for a week on FMB and liked Times Square and the white sand, but the water was smelly and brown. You couldn't see even tour toes in the water.

The beach was beautiful. It was quiet and very low key. Just enough people so it didn't feel desolate but everyone could spread out easily. We can't wait to come back
