“Beautiful sandy beach”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

We were there in March and it was very crowded. Many families there but not the spring break students.

The sand is so soft. Beautiful beach. Walking the shoreline gives you a view of the water on one side and hotels on the other. Get there early for parking in the garage that charges $8.00 for the day.

“Beautiful!”
Reviewed April 14, 2014 via mobile

We stayed in a condo just a couple blocks away. This beach has soft, white powder sand. The water is a very nice looking blue. The sunsets are incredible. The beach does get extremely busy though.

“Beautiful white powder sand beach!”
Reviewed December 31, 2013

Convenient parking and beautiful clean white beach for strolling, shelling, or sunning. Put this stop on your list of beaches to hit if anywhere near the southwest coast of Florida, you won't be disappointed. There is a reason the Ritz-Carlton is right there ;-)

“Sweet”
Reviewed December 23, 2013 via mobile

Loved this beach! The sand is like flour and the beach is clean. The parking garage nearby was a godsend as it saves you from hunting around for a parking spot. The cost was $8 for the day. The beach was busiest near the entrance to the beach because most people don't want to drag their stuff too far but if you walk down a little ways the crowds thin out drastically. A great beach to walk on too.
