Easy sand and coquina path. The walk to the point is 1.3 miles one way. Very peaceful. Spotted lots of dolphins!

this park can be reached by walking but is more fun to come by boat. Come through the pass and go along to the north and pull on to shore. Walk over berm and you are there!
Good shark's teeth to be found. Fun way to spend the afternoon.

Gorgeous beach, shark teeth and shells. Very nice facility available also. The drive around the key is striking.

Stump Pass is like stepping back in time. I bought My vacation home there because of it. www.thehighviewmanasotakey.com

I walk from The Highview into this slice of paradise every time I'm there. No two trips are the same. Sometimes I will see turtle tracks that come out of the water and then return to the Gulf (see photos) Osprey flying with a fish in there claws, dolphin swimming and playing along the beach and bay. Watch fish swim by you as you walk the shore, pelicans rising high then plunging into the water after a fish dinner. This place is truly Gods back yard! If your in tune with your surroundings there's no telling what you will see...yes there is...you will see everything!

Our place was literally down the beach from this park. We approached from the beach and walked down into the Park. It is ocean on one side and bay on the other. There were alot of spots to step out and enjoy the bay and the center had a wealth of information on fish, birds and shells. It is alos wheelchair accessible. Not much time was spent in the park but it was a nice walk and I can see families with young children enjoying this park. We went simply to talk a long walk after settling in and it suited us just fine.
