Owner description: One of the two top public access points to Marco Beach. It has great shelling.

We walked here from our hotel, it was well worth it. We plan on going again during our stay. The beach is really pretty and quiet . There are a lot of big rocks to sit on and there were a lot of people fishing of the shore. I found a lot of neat shells and hope to find more today. I would recommend going here if you are staying at Marco island. Also if you go here and get a parking pass for eight dollars, it is good for the day and you can use it to go to Tiger tail Beach too.

we were members of Residents beach and in fact got married there! however, if you're interested in walking for exercise, the south beach is perfect as the sand is firmer and easier to walk on than resident's beach sand. it's great and lots of fun!

This beach is beautiful! Not too crowded either. Alot of shells on the sand though, so make sure you wear shoes.

Very big and beautiful beach. It does have a lot of shells by the public entrance but if you walk 5-10 minutes it gets better. No better way to spend a day than at the beach. We went during spring break and it was busy but it never seemed crowded. I cannot wait to go back.

Love how wide the beach is...lots of shells to sift through. Water is clear and the beach is well maintained.
