Lovely beach

Nice soft powder sand, just enough stretch of beach. Feels very private and relaxing. Nice place to have a picnic.

What a place to enjoy the romance of the sun setting. You sure don't need to go to Key West to see a beautiful sunset if you are in this area. Free access with plenty of seating. Just beautiful!

I would not recommend this park. I participate in the yearly beach clean up that Tarpon does. Due to the items I have found I would not bring my family. Fred Howard Park is less then give minutes in a car.

We enjoyed a quiet walk on the beach and some birding. The view was pretty but I imagine it would get very crowded in the warmer weather, it was about 60 today.

We stopped by to watch the sunset and were so impressed by this local beach park. There were some benches to sit on (plus the sand and rocks), playground, volleyball net, covered picnic areas, bathrooms, sand rinsing areas, and lots of parking. There were lots of people in the water and playing on the sand. It is also dog friendly.and... More

I loved finding this quiet little spot away from the main beaches. It wasn't crowded the day we went (Sunday late morning). Although it's not large, it's great for a relaxing couple of hours or a game of sand volleyball. The public bathrooms were cleaner than expected and parking was easy to find.

Very small beach (less then 2 acres!), a few benches and a restroom. Yes, if you arrive just before sunset you can watch and experience a beautiful sunset, but for anything else go to Fred Howard which is just a short distance away.
