Went in the morning and found a good number of shark teeth! We were thrilled!! Be aware, there is no shade, and it does get extremely hot. Be prepared for this. Good time.

Let me start out saying - I love this beach - we visit it every time we come to Florida. However, yesterday (Tues, June 12,2018) we were down further near the dog park area. I believe they are dealing with the red tide. Dead fish...More

This is a nice out-of-the way beach. It is a bit remote, but well worth the trip. The view is beautiful. Just remember to pack a lunch and something to drink.

We took a day trip and ended up at the beach. The sand is very hot and burnt the bottom of my feet. Nice beach, rocky with crashing waves. Not a good place for little ones. WEAR WATER SHOES.
