“Average Beach”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

We visited Englewood Beach on a recent day trip. Very nice location with decent facilities and dining nearby. Plenty of housing and resturants here. The beach charges for parking and the sand is a bit coarser than Siesta Key. If I had the option, I would go to Siesta Key instead.

“Best beach”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

If you are looking for a beach that is quaint, laid back, and very family oriented then this is your next vacation spot. The water is so clear and calm. For those who can't sit still, there are plenty of sharks' teeth and shells to pick up.

“Englewood Beach is popular but laid back even in "season"”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

If you are looking for a location that has great beaches that are strung along the barrier island of Manasota Key, look no further. This beach has all you need -- good parking (for a modest fee), walk-to restaurants, nearby boat and kayak rentals, and plenty of seasonal places where you can stay. There are other beaches on the same Key that are also worthwhile, but none have as many features. Across the street from the beach are a couple of great restaurants. The nearby town of Englewood is quaint, with a few nice shops, galleries, and restaurants. It's worth a try if you don't want all the traffic and hassle of the more well-known towns in s/w FL.

“Ah, the Gulf of Mexico done right!”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

This beach has a boardwalk, restrooms, playground, BBQ and tables, local restaurants and convenience stores across the street. Parking is paid through a machine and sticker put on your car. Beach has shells on the shore, and a slight incline into the water. During turtle nesting season, there are nests marked throughout the length of the beach. Family oriented crowd - must bring umbrellas as there is no rental booth.
