“Great Sunset Spot”
Review of Manasota Key Beach

Manasota Key Beach
Ranked #2 of 40 things to do in Englewood
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

Somehow Manasota always wins out when we head to the beach to watch the sunset. I would personally rank it #4 of 4 beaches on Manasota Key.

I don't think that the sand is quite as white as the other beaches.

I haven't been to this beach since the construction was finished (I'm assuming that it is now finished) on the facilities. I would guess that the facilities are now awesome.

It's a fine beach, just not my first choice.

We have enjoyed going to this beach since we moved here. It is the beach where we take family and friends. The beach is very nice and easy to get to from the large parking lot across the street. The parking is free. The facilities are new this year. We enjoyed a picnic there on Mother's Day evening. We usually come for the sunsets and have a number of beautiful pictures and memories over the years. It is a treasure that people from all over the world visit, and it is so close to home.

This is a wonderful white sand beach! People can even collect shark teeth to take home.
On the north end of the beach (in Sarasota County) free parking/facilities and picnic tables.

On the Charlotte County south end of the beach is parking but unfortunately they charge to do so.
Across from the parking lot/facilities is several restaurants which are very good.

If you are new to the Florida sun be very careful because it is easy to become sunburned.

The beach entrance has recently been renovated to add showers, toilets and changing rooms. There are several picnic shelters with picnic tables and BBQ's, and there is a life-guard on duty during the day. Lots of free parking and boat launch facilities on Lemon Bay across the street.
Miles of natural beach both North and South. Take the Beach Road drive past beautiful houses on the Gulf and Bay, past Middle Beach to Englewood Beach and back into town.

The sand id soft, the water is warm and the surf is non-existent. A wonderful beach for small children. There are rest rooms and showers and parking. And you might find sharks teeth.

There are good casual restaurants near by too.
