“peace and private this time of year”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

I all most do not want to make this review to keep the park peaceful. Nice Friendly people also
parking is not a problem its free also. Clean and wheel chair friendly .
Its used mostly by locals .Many snowbirds also use it . On windy days you will see Kite surfers and during the season when Dolphins run u can see them also . You will pass a small market food is nearby. gary

“Beautiful sunsets at no charge”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

If you are looking for soft white sandy beaches you are in the wrong place. But, if you want to relax, sit on your beach chair with your feet in the water and watch the beautiful Florida sunset, this is the place. It is not crowded, free to park, with the cleanest restrooms I ever experienced at a public area.
The last Thursday of every month are free concerts, put on by the city of Tarpon. Nothing like bringing your folding chair, something to eat, and a cold drink, just to sit with the beautiful Gulf breeze and listen to good local musical groups.
Try Sunset Beach out, you will like it.

“Nice, rugged, natural setting.”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

Great bay for fishing, but don't expect a groomed beach, I personally like this beach, not the best with kids, great for fishing, sunsets, and kayaking!

“Beautiful at Sunset”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

We visited this beach on our first evening in the area, and it turned out to be a great start to our vacation. We made it there just prior to sunset and the view was amazing! We selected the location based on recommendation by locals, and we were not disappointed! The vibe was very laid-back, and the beach is quiet and somewhat secluded (lots of locals on bikes, families with small children, couples strolling near the surf). There are bathrooms, covered picnic areas, showers, ample free parking, and great photography opportunities. My daughter loved playing in the water and chasing the seagulls.
