  • Had a good time playing in the ocean, jumping in the waves and splashing around. One negative was the seaweed was insane. The entire beach was just covered in it. Really needed a good raking.

  • nice beach, great hangout spot. only disappointment was lots of sea weed. I'm not sure if its an everyday thing since I'm not from Florida. it might just be a sometime kinda thing. the water was really nice. lost of people. you need to come very early to get a great spot.
  • Great mix of locals and tourists. Beautiful beach with a Lively atmosphere. Lots of restaurants and shops including Ron Jon Surf Shop.
  • One of the most beautiful beaches we have visited in the United States. The pier can get a bit crowded so you will probably have to wait in line as they control the flow of people on and off. On the pier, they have 2-3 restaurants and a bar as well as souvenir shops. There is a store nearby where you can buy all your beach essentials and souvenirs as well as drinks. On the beach, itself you can find beach chairs, surfboards, and umbrella rentals that are fairly priced. Also, you will need to pay for parking.
  • Beautiful beach. My best friend proposed to me on this beach while the sun was setting(golden hour). It was priceless!
  • Pretty decent beach but could've been better. I went Tuesday morning and it was pretty crowded. The sand was kind of hot but wading in the water was nice. I had to wait a while to get a decent photo of the water without people in it. I found some alright looking shells, they're on the smaller side. Not too much seaweed on the sand, thankfully. I was near the access close to Ron Jon Surf Shop. Parking is a bit dicey because it's expensive, seems like the city really wants to milk the beachgoers. Didn't go in the bathrooms so I can't attest to their cleanliness (or lack thereof), but they had outside showers and foot washing stations which were useful for getting sand and mud off my feet. There's equipment for rental nearby but it's probably pricey, and there was a staffed lifeguard stand, for a little more peace of mind. Not bad, but not the best I've ever been to.
