Ocan View Pub and Inn Islamorada Beach access?

Hello, very last minute trip to Islamorada this weekend. We were looking at OV - but couldnt find info on a beach or beach access?

If anyone could provide information that would be great!

Thanks, learning a ton about Islamorada from everyones postings.

really not any beaches in Islamorada.

The closest you will find to a beach is Anne's Beach on Lower Matecumbee. Not really a "Beach" but it stands in for one for many.

For a couple of better beaches it's a little drive but may be worth it to you - Sombrero Beach in Marathon and Bahia Honda State Park which is right past Marathon.

Thank you! I should of said "water access". I read about the state park beach, so I'm sure we will head there at some point!

If you are prepared to pay a fee, there is former Holiday Isles, now the new Postcard Inn, with a beach and "water access" and lounge chairs not far from OV. It however is not funny anymore as it used to be years ago.

Another option would be Founders Park with a small but nice public beach. Drive up the Keys from OV.

And another FYI, Founders Park charges a daily entrance fee for non-residents of Islamorada :-(

Bartender friends who have stayed at the OV say it is a fun time at the bar.

Hope you have a fun weekend!
