Was in ft Meyers for a family wedding and whole crew went to tiger tail... Tony Smith runs the rental shop there and could not have been more accommodating.. From shady pilapas to paddle boards and kayaks.. Had a great time exploring the lagoon and hangin on the beach.

Enjoy a wonderful day paddleboardig or kayaking or many other fun water sports around the lagoon and see beautiful sights. It's a nice quiet area not overly populated which makes it more fun because you can be as loud as you want and no one can complain!!!! Tony the guy who rents the stuff is awesome and will take very good care of everyone!!!!
And all beaches on Marco you have to pay to visit but if you have a vehicle registered in FL you can get a each sticker at the library and its free!! They have a food stand with awesome food and drinks! Also has a playground and public bathrooms!! Definitely would go back and enjoy the day kayaking or many other options!!

Parking is not too close to the actual beach. You can either wade through the lagoon to the other side of an inlet, or walk around. The beach is very clean, and free of trash. Lots of shells to play with. No lifeguard on duty, so be smart.

This beach is great! I loved the experience i had there. As soon as you walk to the beach, you will find yourself in a inter-coastal like area. I asked some of the guys that rent water equipment how to get to the real ocean, and they pointed me to a penensuila in the middle of the inter-coastal that will take you to the other end where the real beach is. It was quite an adventure crossing the penesuila over, never don't it before so it was fun.
A very interesting thing you wont see anywhere else is the millions of little Fiddler crabs you will see around there. Around 4 pm, the floor will be COVERED with them like a carpet. As you walk , they all dig in the floor & hide. Its a crazy scene that you have to experience!

The thing i didn't like is they have some weird roach looking flies that fly over the sand everywhere which is kind of gross, but don't pay too much attention to them, you will be ok they don't bite.

yes, definitely would recommend this to others to experience it at least once.
