“Great place to go to”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2014

Never been before but the beach is lovely and is free if you are staying locally (take proof you are in a local motel). I spent a lovely few hours there. Will go again

“Great for Children”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2014

Went shallow to 5 feet deep with little wave action so great for small children. Had a playground adjacent to the beach as well as picnic tables and restroom facilities

“Great place to walk around and take a swim”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

Being a resident of Islamorada lets you enjoy this place at no cost to park, use the beach or walk around. Only a small fee for the pool. If you are not a resident, it may be pricey during holiday weekends. The pool is first class. Great diving boards, slides and kiddie area, The facilities are clean. The beach is small but nice for a keys beach. it has a little area for kids to swing and play. The docks are awesome and well maintained. Sometimes, there are concerts on the frounds and its lots of fun. It has a skate park and soccer field as well.

“great for lazy days”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2014

If you are staying in Islamorada at a hotel you can get in for free just by showing your key. Friendly fella at the gate too. You can also use the super duper olympic size pool for just 3$ adult, 2$ kid. This pool was amazing! Just perfect place with actual nice lifeguards.
The beach is fun for kids snorkeling w/ lots of small fish (biggest I saw was about 6" whitefish)... no waves and shallow so super safe..
Beach very clean and we had fun messing with playful crabs while laying under the swaying palms.

Lots of boats slipped here to check out and it even has tennis courts here too, just a nice place to get out and check out on a lazy day.

p.s.s.>Thanks to the cleaning guys! cleanest park bathrooms I have ever seen, wow!
