Very Quite and Relaxing!

We went to the beach every day we were there. I didn't feel that is was crowded at all. We saw many dolphins swimming close to shore. The beach is very beautiful!

We enjoyed the beauty of the beach. We took our bikes and enjoyed the rail to trails However there are golfing carts on it as well. You have to watch them. We saw young kids driving, a older man driving one while walking his dog traveling on the wrong side of the road.

The beaches along the island are wonderful for walking and collecting shells. Always clean and good for swimming. If you're lucky you'll find a few sand dollars for your collection.

Great white sand beach with easy public access. Dogs allowed on leash. If you go early (8:30-9:00 am), you can avoid any crowds and occasionally let the dogs go free. Great beach for shelling or just walking. No food, portapottys, or water but there are trash receptacles on the short walk from public right of way to beach. Very clean,... More

This beach is gorgeous, much nicer than many beaches in the southern area of Florida where the water can be a gross, gray color. The water is Azure blue. Beaches were uncrowded and beautiful. It costs $6 to go across the bridge to get her...just fyi. Apparently, only passes for this specific bridge work. We have a state pass for... More

We've walked this beach 3 - 4 times in the last three years. There's no entertainment, just a beautiful beach, wonderful sand and picturesque views. It's not a beach you are going to stumble upon as getting here has to be very deliberate. But once you've arrived....enjoy.

Having the lighthouse as background to this beach made it seem more beautiful and beyond the water you see land. Lots of shells. Bring your kite.

This beach has multiple beach areas, which can make it especially interesting. There is a nice quiet soft beach area as well as a rocky fishing area and a mound of shells. Watching the boats travel the canal is also a nice pastime while relaxing. The lighthouse museum is right there for good information on the area, shells and fossils.... More

I've been coming to this beach at least a dozen times a year for the last 35 years. It Had all there is to offer Beautiful sand, the Sea, the fishing and fantastic bird watching. For years I sit by the reuins of the phosphate docks and watch the dolphins jump, the osprey fish for dinner and carry their catch... More
