“Awesome Beach - Highly recomend”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

I like this beach better than Lovers Key and Lover's Key is outstanding. The drive in is fantastic. There are Tortoise diggins everywhere - more than Bowditch on Estaro. The area is kept natural. There are many birds here. I recomend this beach to people of all ages.

“Go in the afternoon.”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

So crowded, we were lucky when the morning people started to leave and a parking space opened up. You must be careful not to encroach on the land turtles that are an endangered species...so sort of a strange place for a park! You are warned to look under your car before backing out so that you don't crush a turtle.

“What a Beach!”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

We loved the nice white, clean sand, and boardwalks (with turtles). Clean facilities and wildlife information were good too. Not too busy, fairly easy to get to. The road in to the beach has some huge houses to look at too. We heard the other beaches near Old Naples fill up on nice days, so I think we made a great choice.

“Nice beach, loads of room”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

Good parking available, but remember to arrive by 9:30ish during season. Otherwise, you may not find a parking place. Good clean beach with lots of room to spread out.

“Sea Shells Galore”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

This is a great beach for shelling. The cost is $8 for the day. There are restrooms avaliable and 3 parking areas are avaliable. You have to drive through a residential area with some huge homes before you get to the entrance to the park.
