This beach is the best beach in Florida, it is secure, quiet and calm. What I like from this beach is that is not crowded and that make it kids friendly. To get inside the park there is a 5.00 fee per car.

July weather is going to be Hot and humid everywhere in Florida. The fire pit is $3/ night or you can buy one there for $28.99 and keep it or bring your own - its just an aluminum bucket.
