My husband and I got married here, so that says a lot about how much we love this beach. Perfect white sand, private feeling, beautiful blue water. We always stay at Tropical Shores which is just a short walk away!

All the white sand you could want, sea shells everywhere, umbrella/chair rentals available and no crowds. Water is especially blue against the white sand. Very clean

We loved everything about this beach. The sun sets were so gorgeous and every morning we walked on the beach as the sun rose. We walked all the way down to the public beach each morning and several days we found lots of nice shells. The beach is quiet and peaceful in September ~ a great month to visit if you like it less busy! It is truly a piece of heaven on earth. We can't wait to return!

This is a well maintained and wide beach. The public portion is very large and wide and deep, with about 5 life guard stations.

The sand is beyond perfect. It is a white powder, not grainy. Hard to pull a cooler through the beach when it is this powdery, but who cares, it is awesome.

The water is also very blue and shallow. Many saw manatees and lots of fish. No coral, just sand.

There are also some beach vendors that will let you rent kayaks, and do parasailing if you want.

Highly recommend. This is one of the best beaches I've been to, except British Virgin Islands on Jost Van Dyke, but that is still good.

Everything. When we stayed at Tropical shores, this was the beach that was right down the path. Fishing right off the rocks at the far left end was amazing as well. Plenty of different types of beautiful shells and the sunset/sunrise was amazing over the ocean. Enjoyed walking the beach at dawn and watching my little one run and try to catch the different array of birds and pelicans. Even my teenager loved the beach and stayed in the ocean all day instead of video games. (that was a miracle!).
