Go to this beach to witness a beautiful sunset. The sand was a mixture of sand/dirt and there were not a lot of shells to find. Lots of seaweed. We had fun watching fish jumping in the water and we were grateful for the park...More

Small city beach area with ample parking, benches, picnic tables, playground, and restrooms. The beach isn’t sandy but composed of dirt. Families were enjoying this setting on hot summer evening. However, it doesn’t compare to the beaches south of Clearwater.

This park is aptly named. It is an amazing place to take in a Florida sunset. Panoramic views are beautiful. The park is clean and nice with ample picnic tables. Bring your boat, paddle board or kayak. It’s so easy to launch from here. The...More

This tiny beach has picnic tables, restrooms and plenty of parking. If you want something more scaled down than Clearwater Beach, this is worth consideration. Shallow water is good for the little ones.

Been there late afternoon into the evening for Thursday evening free concerts. Gets quite crowded, hence the going in the afternoon for a good parking spot. Clean rest rooms. Grills. Not a deep beach but nice. And of course the reason it is called Sunset...More

This is a great little beach! Clean, quiet and plenty of close parking. It wasn’t crowded, but there was an “interesting” fella wearing a banana hammock, asking women to take photos of him... with THEIR cameras!

A wee sma' bit of sand, tables for picnicers, launch area for boats and other water enthusiasts. Easy to get on a board or kayak and paddle away. Just watch the tides or you'll be paddling in place for a long time. The water is...More

We have lived in Tarpon Springs since 2002 and just found this little jewel of a place last year. Excellent place to go experience a beautiful sunset without the clutter of electric lines and buildings. It has never felt "crowded". There are benches or bring...More

The absolute perfect place for family photos or just to enjoy the views. Plenty of space so it doesn’t seem crowded. Loved our visit and will definitely be back.
