    Spectacular show for all ages!
    We arrived early enough to get a good parking space, walk around a while then find seats on a beachside bench. And, what a show it was! Seabirds skimmed along the water looking for dinner or cruised by a bit higher up. Children played on the beach and folks strolled by watching the main event slowly develop. The sun played hide and seek among the clouds and lit up the sky with all shades of gold, orange and red before dipping below the horizon. Great stop for all ages!

    Nice beach areas
    Wonderful views. Clean& we had no issues parking. There was an ice cream truck to complete the overall charm here. Very few small shells. Sandy soft beach went on and on. My only regret is not being able to enjoy the beautiful place longer.

    My fiancé and I came to sunset beach during the weekend when we couldn’t tour the different wedding venues. Luis 61 took us to the three places on resort we were curious about, no questions asked. He was such a wonderful host and spokesperson for the whole resort! Thank you Luis!

This is a lovely park with accessible beach. There is a lot of parking, but it can fill to capacity for the sunset. This beach also has a Free Little Library, for exchanging books to read. There are picnic tables, if you forget chairs and tables. A volleyball net was being used for sport, even though a sign said no organized sports. A nearby pavilion was used by young children doing summersaults.

For the sunset, you can sit or stand on the beach. You can sit in your own chair. Several benches are available on the beach or in the concrete before the beach. It is much cooler here than in town, so we enjoyed the breezes. It wasn’t very crowded, and there is no admission fee. Palm trees were all over the place, adding shade & atmosphere. Since most every stranger is 6 feet apart, we felt it was not necessary to wear our masks.

There are bathrooms, water fountains, and a playground, too! Very nice place to hang out!

On Thursday the weather was a perfect beach day, so we drove the 95 miles to Sunset beach in Tarpon Springs from the Villages. The parking lot was near capacity. The people and families all followed proper spacing. The playground areas were closed. The seaweed was piled up on the shore. But, the water was warm and inviting. It's a really nice family style beach.

We are fortunate to have several local beaches from which to enjoy our sunsets. This is one of the smaller ones but I like it because for part of the year the sun sets behind one of the further islands. That makes for some great photos. Also most of the other beaches charge for access or parking. This beach has all the same amenities, but for free.

Sunset Beach is appropriately named. It is a small park-like beach. Once monthly there is a band concert held here. Cars are parked everywhere. People bring their chairs and listen to the music. There are also areas where you can cook your hamburgers, etc. Kids play volleyballs here, too. There are modern bathrooms. The beach is out on a point. On the left side of the beach is an area where boaters can place their boats into the water. I've seen beautiful kites here, as well as sailboats and water scooters. As sunset approaches, cars begin to arrive. People line the beach to watch the beautiful sunset.

So glad we listened to the locals….. they said get there early, it will get busy.
Right before the sun was to set people started pouring it and they were gone shortly thereafter.
The park is beautiful and well maintained …. We spent the afternoon there and enjoyed ourselves.
It was the mist beautiful sunset we have see in a long time.
It’s a must stop location.

The beach was accessible from town and easy to reach by car. Ample parking is available. There are several benches for sitting to watch the sunsets, which are really beautiful to see from the beach. A very popular destination for locals and tourists alike.

When our grandkids visit we would take them to Sunset Beach for their Florida beach fix and they loved it. The place is great for adults as well as it is significantly less crowded and has spectacular sunsets to boot! The county has it well maintained, equipped with a boat launch, parking, restrooms, outdoor showers, covered picnic areas, and a beautiful beach on the Gulf. What more could you want?

I think this is a county beach. There are restrooms, playground structures, and a shelter. There is no concession. There is a soda machine that takes $1 bills or credit cards. Bring your own food and beverages!! There is not much sandy beach area, but the water is easy to access and shallow.
