“Narrow park bordered by water”

Ranked #2 of 17 things to do in Englewood
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 8, 2014

This is a nice long strip of beach with the gulf on one side and inland waterway on the other. It's a nice clean beach, again very narrow but good for a nice long walk.

We love walking along the beach collecting sharks teeth. We always walk all the way to the end to the inlet. Very beautiful well maintain park.

We stayed a couple blocks from the park and walked down to the pass every day. On the Gulf side you have a smooth white sand beach for a half mile or so. Then, the stumps and trees start until you get out on the point of the pass. Lots of shells and sharks teeth. Along the bay side the vegetation grows out to the water so it is difficult to walk along the shore. There are wide walking trails down the pass which wind through the woods then out along the shoreline. Dolphins often swim along the shore and bay. I saw an osprey catch a fish then another osprey try to steal it. Lots of wildlife to watch. This would be a great opportunity for kids to see a mostly natural Florida beach. This park is a huge asset to the area and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Highly recommended.

I like this beach because it takes a few more minutes to get to....but uncrowded, always free parking and pleasant.

We stopped there one day on a pontoon boat and the next on kayaks and paddle boards. This is a beautiful beach with plenty of wildlife. My son and daughter were paddle boarding in the channel and were met by dolphins. They were all over the channel and swimming under their paddle boards. You can't beat the experience!
The only drawback was that we were too late in the season for manatees but that was our fault. They hang out in warmer back waters during the winter months.
