State Park Beach
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. Make Stump Pass Beach State Park part of your personalized Englewood itinerary using our Englewood trip generator.
