    Absolutely breathtaking! Would highly recommend! You do have to pay to park but it’s worth it! They have staff that are constantly going around the park to check on things!

    Crystal Sands was beautiful during our visit in August 2023. The water was so clear. There was not any seaweed and the sand was very white and clean.

    Always beautiful and so much to do! Plenty of restaurants to choose from. Cute little shops along the way. We love using the water taxi to get around.

    We stopped by during the "off-season" but enjoyed doing the HarborWalk and view of the Marina. Several restaurants were open. A nice place to visit while in the area.

    We fished off the east jetties and caught lots of small fish. The jetties are dangerous and you should be in good health and have a good balance to climb on the mini jagged rocks. The beach is beautiful and the water is gorgeous along with the sand, it was not crowded Near the east jetty

    Not too exciting! I think the write ups about this spot are a bit misleading. I do not view it as a "must see" The Sailtop State park is much better and worth the low admission fee.

    There's an area for small dogs, and another area fenced off for larger dogs. It was easy to park there, we went many times.

    Stopped by here at middy. There was lots of parking and a small boardwalk trail. There was also a fishing pier area
    Along the shore was a bit of wildlife and a trail alongside the water. Not too much to see. Would be a good place to walk your dog.

    Great access to Crystal Beach adjacent to Henderson State Park. Very limited parking spots (4-5) so you might need to park on the street or get dropped off. There is a nice size covered area with a couple of tables. Close walk to beach from where you park and enter.

    UPDATE: There is no parking lot at Norriego Point for the time being - the only parking available is STREET PARKING and it is $20 for four hours (paid up-front, through an app). A large section of the entrance is now fenced in and is a long walk from the street to the beach area (you can walk between the fences, there is a very narrow walkway). The snorkel areas ARE beautiful as is the view of HarborWalk Village and the boats coming and going but just wanted to give an update for a lot of the outdated information to minimize the chance for anger or disappointment. If you're going to try to visit Norriego, I highly recommend going EARLY as those parking spots fill up quickly!!!

    Renting a paddle board from this business was the easiest thing I did the entire vacation. Dropped off/picked up and prices much less than renting directly from the beach rental company!
