Beautiful beach in a lovely residential area. They offer Huts with picnic tables to entertain a group.Great playground that all the kids love. Clean restrooms. Kayak rentals and tours. And best of all, you can bring your dog!!

It's hard to find a good, sandy beach in the Keys. That's not the attraction, really. Some beaches are rocky, some grassy and slimy (Anne's Beach) and too shallow. Some are too grassy and you have to climb over a big bank of stuff to get in the water (Bahia Honda). Sombrero Beach is beautiful (water freezing, it was December!), a great place to sunbathe... a couple of brave souls were snorkeling... nice playground and bathhouse. If we hadn't been staying so far from the beach, we probably would've trekked here every day. We looked at lots of other beaches because the water is so blue/green beautiful, you just want to get in it! This is the only one my 17 y.o. daughter could get all the way in. For people with really little guys I would stick to Anne's Beach which is really shallow...wear water shoes because it's very slimy and they may think it feels yucky, but the water is warm, clear and beautiful.

this is a great beach to go and just relax read a book sunbath and cool off in the ocean.they have nice restrooms outdoor showers and playground for the kids.only down side is there are dogs allowed on the beach if that bothers you. We always stay at bahia honda state park and still come to this beach to people watch.

It was crowded when we went, the beach is clean but packed. Bring a chair and umbrella if you want to sit on the beach for an extended period of time.
