I had been before when it was not too windy to lie on the beach and so I knew how good it was. Unfortunately it has been too windy to do anything other than walk around this time.

Very nice quiet beach to visit. We were able to nap on the beach and enjoy the ocean water. Clean. Not crowed at all. We visited in early December. 85 degrees. Perfect!

We visited this beach twice, it has something for everyone. You can swim, lay out, fish, bird watch, watch the sun set, play sand volley ball or just relax.

If you're driving between the mainland and the Keys, give this beach a visit to break up your drive. Batteries for changing and picnic areas.

Would have given 5 except could not find change facility. Only a washroom. Nice park frontage area. Play area. Outdoor showers. Wheelchair access right to beach. Beach is good sand ground to a point and then you have weeds on the bottom. Beautiful location. Easy to find. Lots of parking. Free

Great stop on way to or from Key West. Signs mark the left turn (if heading South) then go about 1-2 miles. Picnic areas, restrooms, plenty of parking. Family friendly.
