Best beach in the area. Amazing views and awesome shells. I recommend renting a paddle board or kayak it will definitely add to the experience. Highly recommend to any visitor.

Spent a few days at this beach. Great place to collect lots of shells and walk along the water. We brought umbrella & chairs & found a little spot not far off the path. It was like our own private beach! Very relaxing & enjoyable. Only downside was the walk across the lagoon to beach. The park offers cabana &... More

Nice area for children that are younger as well as rental equipment for older children . There is a snack bar but the beer is cheaper than a cheeseburger. Lagoon was low but still plenty to do.

We spent the day at Tigertail Beach after we had paddle boarded for couple hours. I would highly recommend this beach as it was very clean & nice place to spend day as a change of scenery for a day since we were staying on Marco.

If you enjoy looking for seashells, this beach is for you. It had about 6 inches deep in some areas, and it was painful to walk on in bare feet. There was construction while we were there, and you, could hear the vehicles and smell the exhaust coming from them. Exactly what you don't want at a beach! Other than... More

With two teens in tow, we set out to Tigertail Beach for a great day on the Gulf. Note should be made, that if you go, it is difficult for young children to cross over the pond of water and walk thru the brush to reach the crystal clear water and beautiful sugar white sand. But the trek is truly... More

Came here several days during ur Marco island vacation. Did some SUP paddle boarding and waded across the lagoon to the beach. Enjoyed watching the horseshoe crabs and even watched a hawk eating his fish meal. Dolphins swam with us at the beach. Who could ask for more?? The wade back was longer and deeper (and a little gross-warm, fishy... More

Going here again in a few weeks. Had to laugh at some of the reviews describing the beach as murky water etc. THIS IS NOT THE BEACH. When you arrive, and leave the parking you are confronted with a Lagoon (NOT THE BEACH). The beach which is beautiful and very quiet (for the following reasons) is at the other side... More

This beach is absolutely awesome! Large and inviting with lots of white sand and shells to give the youngsters something to do. Amazing sunset views and great swimming! The only draw back is that it is about a 10 minute walk to the beach. Sometimes parking is also limited and does cost. So riding a bicycle would be best. There... More
