$8 without Collier County beach pass, free with beach pass. Gorgeous natural beach, however, since it's natural (aka untouched) there are still some remains of dead fish from after the red tide. Not bad enough to keep us away though! If you're looking to paddle board, etc in the lagoon any entrance is OK. However, for closest access to the... More

The beach was excellent although the area in the water and edge was very muddy as a result most folks didn't go in the water. I went 2 weeks ago. Empty most go for the lovely peaceful walking, birds and wonderful atmosphere. Parking $8 and nice facilities and even a place to eat & have a drink. You can rent... More

I love this end of the Marco island crescent beach. Usually few people there. Nice if you need some time to be alone.

Fully amenitized collier county public beach where parking is at a premium. Bring your own chairs and umbrellas. Depending on the storms that can shift sands and shoals, there's a nice lagoon for young kids to enjoy. It is also an excellent base for walking the Marco beach front. Local naturalists conduct classes on the local floral and fauna, etc.,... More

Beautiful beach and amazing amount of shells. We went early in the morning and not many people were there. We also saw 3 dolphins playing close by.

Nice beach with white sand and lots of shells. You do have to cross or go around the lagoon to get to the actual beach, but that is part of the adventure.

Wow, what a beautiful and huge beach. We did the walk to the gulf area - about 15 minutes from the parking lot - but it's all packed sand and easy to navigate. Next time we'll bring a buggy, but it really wasn't that big a deal to walk. And oh my the shelling! We went on Thanksgiving and it... More

We got up early to look for shells. It was worth waking up early. We even met a former biologist on our walk who told us about the shells that we found. Loved it!
