A gem of a beach

Quaint but really a comfortable beach. Parking is available and palm trees provide shade for those who are not craving that tan. We like and recommend it if you are on the area.

This beach is at the end of Fred Howard Beach. I ride my Honda Motor Trike there all the time and spend a few hours or take my kayak. Lovely place.

Beautiful Beach, lots to do, accessible and a great way to spend a day. Besides the beach, you can enjoy a picnic lunch and nature walk in the park also.

Close to Tarpon, small but quaint and excellent views. Lots of places to sit in the sun or shade. You can rent bikes or water vehicles. Can ride your own bikes and picnic with nice pavilions. The 15 mph zones keeps traffic slow and more safe.

This is a great place to go to the beach. They have paddle boards and kayaks for those who like to get in the water. It is a great place to watch the sunset or just enjoy the day at the beach.

A causeway connects to what was an island beach. Beautiful park area and large beach. Small parking fee of five dollars, but everyone seems to pass their tickets on to the next car when they leave.

One of my favorite beaches in the area. It is across a great little causeway and has great parking ($5). White sand beach, no waves, great for the little ones! We often see dolphins swimming by.
