This is a great place to go, it’s adventurous, it’s Florida, it’s shelling. It’s worth the walk across through the mud to the other side. Spend the day go there it’s worth it

We weren't aware that you had to hike thru the lagoon to get to the beach. Too much walking for my older group. "Beach" area on the lagoon was all mud and no sand. Disappointed.

We went here to cross the lagoon to hunt for sand dollars. Even though we didn't go at high tide, the lagoon did get thigh-deep in the middle, and would have been chest-deep for my 8-yr-old, so she went across on my husband's shoulders. So...More
