Whitest sand, your feet will not burn on this powdery sand. Beautiful warm waters. Get there before 11am for the free parking on site which fills up quickly during high season.

I loved this beach a lot! It was clean, the water was super clear. The parking was a little difficult as most of the spaces were full when we arrived at 10am. The eating and shower/restroom facilities were awesome!

Large beach, lovely fine white sand. Little to no shade. The water is not overly clear, though some fish were to be seen. I didn't see any beach-side bars or facilities where we were (Columbus Blvd).

This is the best beach for a reason. The water is clear, the sand is white and is always cool. There are concessions, chair and umbrella rentals, lifeguards, and shelters for grilling. Only down side is it is quite a haul from the parking lot...More

This beach is simply beautiful! The water was a bit warm but okay. I felt like we were getting into an easy entry pool rather than swimming in the Gulf. The beach was super clean and we had a wonderful time! There is a sandbar...More

By far one of the nicest beaches I've ever been to. The sand is amazing white powder. Very clear water and usually calm. The beach itself is very large so there's always room. Some nights they have the drum circle and that is also very...More
