I'm not interested in wading the muddy estuary just to get to the beach. We walked around the estuary. The beach itself is no better than any other beach but there are lots of watercraft for rent if you like and can afford that sort of thing.

A dream for shelling, sunbathing, wave-jumping, and family fun. The $8 fee (unless you have the Collier Co. beach pass) is well worth the visit. There is a cafe and playground at the entrance, plenty of parking, restrooms and outdoor showers available. The main beach is about a 1/2 mile walk from the parking area to the water, though there...

Small pay parking lot here, so go early. There is a snack bar, bathrooms and kiddie playground here as well. There is a bird watching tower too. We met Elsa from the Conservatory of SW Florida here for a guided nature walk. They do this every Friday from 830am-1030. She was a wonderfully knowledgeable guide and made it interesting to...

Biked there and it was low tide so we didn't rent a kayak. Dying to come back again. Will check out the tides, though, next time. Low tide would be good for walking across the water. Higher tide for kayaking

This beach is huge and there are lots of places to be alone if that's what you like. Great place for photographers - no end to the flocks of birds - seashells galore - great grasses and small trees. Long or short walk - it's up to you.

Definitely worth a stop - it was absolutely lovely and the shells were amazing and abundant! Would most certainly return.

When we first went in and parked and went down to the water we were a bit disappointed as it clearly wasn't right on the gulf, but a gentleman working there explained where we could walk and get to the gulf and how we could wade to great shelling at low tide. We later discovered additional parking that gets you... More
