My first experience using a Florida "snow shovel"... So exciting bringing up the sands and searching for treasures. Found approx 15 sharks teeth in one hour. The sand is dark and hot, the waves were fairly large and the beach was quiet on a Tuesday afternoon.

This was our first and last time at this particular beach. We were very disappointed. We did not get to swim or enjoy it. We did not find any shark teeth either. There were dead fish all over. The smell was nauseating. Even if the red tide had not been present, this one just would not have been what we... More

We went to this beach because we were told about the shark teeth. We were told, and read reviews, about how many were to be found there. The good news was that we did find some shark teeth. We also had a blast finding shells and playing on the beach. The bad news was that we must have gotten there... More

It's quiet, lots of sea creatures to explore and very clean. The restrooms are nice but alittle walk from the beach.

If all you want is to lay in the sand it would be a fine place to be. No concessions no stores no nothing. A long drive with your valuables locked in your trunk nothing out there nothing to do better beaches in Englewood better beaches in Sarasota not happy with the security or the obscurity.

Beautiful place to sit and relax. I just sat there and watched people hunt for shark teeth. Showers to rinse off too

It was my final day of vacation and I thought I already had seen all the local beaches in the area. Then this one came up in my search, so my sister and I took a drive there. I could not believe how pretty it was! Part of it is rocky - like what you may see on the coast... More

Great little beach, nice and quiet. We went in the afternoon about 3 hours before sunset and we found about 30 shark teeth. My 3 year old son absolutely had so much fun! The facilities are also very nice at this beach. I would highly recommend visiting to hunt for shark teeth, it became so addicting. The more you found... More

This is a nice area and a lot cleaner than some beaches even though I didn't remember seeing many garbage cans. Parking can be a bit tricky. Wooden walk ways take you to the beach. The area is known for the fossilized sharks teeth. You can purchase the sifters to try and find some. Lots of locals make there own... More

We actually stumbled upon this because I didn't turn where I was supposed to...but it was a great decision! Gorgeous beach and beautiful views. We were there at sunset and it was perfect. Not a lot of foot traffic and very peaceful. Very clean and well kept. Loved it!
