We were here a few weeks after the hurricane and there was still a little bit of visible damage. The beaches are very quiet and quite natural which is a nice change of pace for the panhandle. When we visited, there were a lot of weeds on the beach, and the water was a brackish color. Not the prettiest site,... More

We saw a Bald Eagle at the beach!! Awesome!!! Lots of small marine life I have a 5 year old daughter and we all loved the beach and creatures. Does have some biting flies in the evening so prepare for that. I love this beach not very tropical but it's very clean and relaxing. It does have a bathroom area... More

This Beach is like it must have been in old times. We took our blankets down the beach several hundred yards and set ourselves up. It was quiet except for the Gulls. A beautiful quiet experience. Lots of sugar sand- no bugs. Wind was moderate. Great beach but bring your suntan oil and sun block. No beach hawkers bothered us.... More

I drove 12 miles out of my way off US Hwy 98 to take my wife out here. Pretty much for just another look at the ocean. During summer, the bugs will eat you alive on the nature walk, so take plenty of protection. The beach, frankly, is not desirable to swim in. Water is dark, can't see your feet,... More

Drove 80 miles to find one of Florida's white sandy beaches and this place didn't disappoint. Miles of beach, very few people, lovely sea shells, perfect weather. Doesn't get better than that!

Absolutely breathtaking! The serenity of the natural way that the park is kept is beautiful. When you walk down on the sandy beach area itself, you can really see nature in its glory. It is the perfect place to sit and watch the ocean or take in the loveliness of it all. I'm so in love with Alligator Point period.... More

My wife and I visited the park today and took about a 1 mile stroll down the beach. The only other person we saw was a park ranger when walking to the beach. If your looking to go swimming try going further out towards Alligator Point. The water at the park was very murky and full of seaweed. There is... More

This is a lovely area and appeared to have many options in better weather. It was cold and windy. We did walk out on the nature/wildlife boardwalk. Very nice.

Living in Tallahassee, I go to this beach when I don't feel like making the longer drive west to Mexico Beach or even further, Panama City Beach. It's about 50 miles away from Tallahassee and it's fine to visit for a few hours or the day. The Pros? I love the serenity and abundant wildlife, as I lived in Panama... More
