“Lives up to the best beach in the US”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

Smooth sand, clean, small and spectacular if you like a quieter beach. Water was soooo warm and felt like a bath. You won't want to get out. October a good month to come here.

“not bad beach”

A lot of it is private beach, lots of birds, as in more birds than the movie birds, most f the beach is littered with their little white droppings

“Crescent Beach”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

A great family beach! Good shells, lots of wildlife to watch, and a good family atmosphere. We have been 6 times, and look forward to many more visits.

“Not as crowded as Siesta”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

This beach is just south of Siesta and has the same white sand but it is not Siesta and is not quite as nice. It is very less crowded but there is many resorts on the beach that take up some real estate from other beach goes. If your looking to stay away from the crowed but get the same vibe as Siesta this is your option. If you enjoy bird watching and them diving for fish this was also the best spot in Siesta. The other beaches also had a lot of bird action but because of the nearby reefs there was many more fish and its a great spot to watch pelicans. Beware there is no wash off station where I was at.
