Although quite shallow, it's a nice little beach for a peaceful spot between Fort Myers Beach and Sanibel. Nice views.

A nice quiet place to go to be alone. Beach is nice. Pathways throughout the park. An Osprey nest at the entrance of the park. Starfish along the beach. Good place to see the sunset over the Sanibel Island Causeway.

Walked to this beach from the Pink Shell Resort. Plan on returning for weekend days at the beach. Need to arrive early though, as parking is limited.

We were looking for a good location to take photos of the sunset. Got there on time for a nice sunset.

If you are looking for a more quiet and relaxed beach this is it. Picnic tables, bathroom and Gopher Tortoises all through out the park pathways.
