“Sandy beach heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2014

Great place to catch the rays, or enjoy the mostly clear water, but watch out if you burn easily, because you will

“Great park with many options”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2014 via mobile

Beautiful park complete with beaches, nature trails and awesome paddling opportunities. We brought our kayaks and paddled the mangroves. Park has an easy area to launch your kayaks. You can also rent paddle boards there. Gorgeous way to spend a morning! We look forward to going back.

“Beaches baby”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2014

We like trying various beaches while on vacation, and while this wasn't the best (Siesta Key Beach was) it was out of the way, not as crowded, and great views of the shoreline unlike any other. And its a beach. How great is that. :-)

“Barbecue, beach, sandcastles and shelling !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2014

FREE parking ! Bring your picnic basket and your charcoal and have an awesome barbecue. A quick walk to the beach to cool down, then take a stroll on the nature trails (some boardwalk, some paths). You'll find fiddler crabs, egrets, cranes, you may even see an otter.

“Very nice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2014

This park was just down the road from our hotel. Everyday we saw many (12) people walking to that park until we decided to check it out for ourselves. It was an extension of our beach area.
