Stump Pass Beach State Park, Englewood

4.7
At Stump Pass Beach State Park, enjoy a stretch of untouched Florida coastline along the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico. The clear water is ideal for snorkeling, swimming, and kayaking, and the sandy beaches invite visitors to take in some rays or collect shells. Follow the 2 km (1.3 mi) hiking trail leading through five different natural habitats, where you'll see plants such as prickly pear cacti and bay cedars. Keep an eye out for dolphins, ospreys, gopher tortoises, snowy egrets, and even manatees. The park can be reached by boat or car; if you choose the latter arrive early, as the small parking lot can fill up fast.

  • The beach is a little bit away from the large one. No parking-fee. You may walk for quite a long time. Not very crowded. The stand is clean regarding plastic etc. but natural waste depending on tide. ...  more »
  • Paddleboard/kayak launch (and rentals), nature walk, excellent beach area. Only challenge is parking--especially during snowbird season.  more »
  • Love this beach, we park then walk all the way to the end. Collecting sharks teeth and usually at the end we see dolphins close to the shore. There's shell trees. Perfect day  more »
