This beach on Marathon Key was recommended by our resort staff, and we stopped there during daylight hours on our first full day in Marathon. It is a rounded beach open to the east, south and west, so it could be ideal for sunrises and sunsets. In the adjacent park there are playground equipment for kids, covered areas for picnicking,...

Laid-back day at the beach. Sombrero is easy to find and has plenty of parking. Nice pavilion areas, picnic tables. Places to put in a kayak or paddle board. Lots of dogs enjoying the beach as well. Not a wide beach but a beautiful one to hang out and relax.

All the downloaded pictures pretty much indicate what this park is all about. It is very nice and there are plenty of activities to do here, and don't forget they have picnic shelters and stand alone permanent grills for cooking (does anybody do that anymore?). I plan to go there again.

You can catch breathtaking sunrises & sunsets from this beach. You often see weddings & parties. They have an Amazing 4th of July fireworks display over the water.

For the keys a great little beach They don't clean the beach of seaweed which builds up on winds from the South. Other than that great spot. Fresh water showers!

Small beach but not bad seems nice. For Ann island that doesn't have beaches, it served its purpose.

Great beach -- easy to get to. Nice and clean. Paved sidewalk for a walk afterwards. And it's free! So glad that we included this in our trip to Marathon!

Found this nice beach in Marathon. And enjoyed the quiet serene place to rest and walk along the beach. If you want a quiet place to walk on the beach this can be it.
