A small average sandy beach with shallow water in a sheltered cove. (Islamorada is not noted for beaches anyways) a pavilion with picnic tables,available for events. A remarkable large pool for swimming. The dog park is an excellent idea. Good for family visits.

Nice and quiet. Bring a lunch and you can spend the entire day. Sleep, swim in the gulf or fresh water pool. You name it ...you got it!
