“Huge Beach, Family Friendly”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

This beach is clean and the crowd is good. It's never too crowded, as it's very wide. The waters are usually calm and good for swimming. No alcohol is allowed at the beach, and the roving rule-enforcers are strict about this. If you have sensitive feet, you might want to wear shoes if you plan on walking very far. There are a lot of little pieces of shell that hurt my feet. But, on the flip side, there are a lot of nice shells (conchs) that you can hunt out and take home.

“Short walk to marco beach”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Beautiful beach...some shells..be careful if walking. Red tide was in so we did not go into the water. I walked several times...saw dolphins swimming, waves, boats, loved seeing the hotels and condos from beachside. Made the walk very enjoyable.

“Beautiful white sandy beaches.”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

The most beautiful white sandy beach is on the "Island of Paradise" -Marco Island FL
Come for a relaxing vacation on or near the beach with plenty to do or as little as you want to do. Enjoy walks on the white sandy beach, laying in the sun or shelling near the water.

“Great shelling and plenty of room!”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

We rent a block away and walk to South Beach twice a day. Very well manicured, maintained and chocked full of hard to find shells. White sand, shells, and plenty of room! Love it!

“Day at the beach”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

Cost $8 to park at South Beach unless you have a County Beach Pass. The only restrooms are at the parking lot. No public restrooms on the beach. Great beach with the Sunset Grille located next to the beach access. Have a cold beer and use their restrooms. Caution!! Don't leave your belongings unattended!!
