Gorgeous!

Visited this beach just to check it out. We ended up going parasailing and seeing several large manatees. Beach was gorgeous, water clean and clear, sand clean. Loved it!

It's a beautiful beach. But I wish I had known about the no paddleboard or kayak launch from the shore before I took the time to move my equipment to the beach. The life guards were also very disrespectful when informing me I couldn't use my board. Not a bad beach but I'm putting this here to save someone else... More

One of my Favorite aspect about this beach was the great parking and park like setting. We enjoyed our time there. The only flaws we saw were the very expensive cafe, and the lack of posted information. My husband was snorkeling and had gone close to the dock, or barrier. A rescue unit came rushing up to whistle for him... More

We love this beach, having first found it in 1992 when our daughter was just four and a half, we continue to visit as often as we can. (She still loves it as well). Good parking, easy access, beach lifeguards with all the relevant watchtowers an equipment, making it a safe place for families and children. It has a bus... More

This is a really nice public beach. Plenty of parking. was there on a weekend and the beach was not very crowded. Snack bar food was good for what it was but a little pricey.

Always good to come here. Life guard stations all along the beach. Parking is plentiful, under the Australian Pines, close to the water & not too crowded. Working on a new pier at North end. South end has place for food. Ideal for locals & visitors.

Stopped here early on a Saturday. We shopped the market first. They had all kinds of things for sale. We ended up purchasing a few jars of the best jelly we had ever tasted. After shopping we headed out to the beach. We walked in the water picking up shells. The beach was very clean. They have nice facilities. Would... More

One of the best beaches in Florida! The sand is extremely white and soft, beach water is very clear and warm. They have bathrooms and places to wash off. Can't wait until our next visit!

The beach itself is beautiful. They have a restroom and place to wash off. They also have areas to have a picnic and lots of parking. My husband even got to do a little bit of fishing. Gorgeous area overall.

A lovely beach, we arrived here during the weekend, and though they were plenty of visitors, the beach is large enough and offers privacy, the sand is white and very clean, warm turquois water, lots of parking space, On Sundays there is a nice flea market nearby, overall a very relaxing beach, very well maintained - we enjoyed it a...
