Stump Pass Beach State Park, Englewood

(4.6/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Thanks to it's protectors this 1.3 mile stretch of of mangroves, jungle, sand, shells, water and critters remains virtually unchanged.  more »
  • Hiking, beachcombing, kayaking, everything is delightful here. We saw birds galore, dolphins, tropical plants, and endless shells. This is a wonderful spot for fishing or relaxing on the beach too.  more »
  • This is a quiet beach good for finding shark's teeth and shells. The only drawback is limited parking, which costs $3 for day, so one must get there early in morning if you want to utilize the beach.  more »

  • Stunning, absolutely stunning! What a treasure, with Lemon Bay on one side and the Gulf on the other. Walk all the way to the end and you will have the best view. The small parking lot is the only downside so be prepared to wait for a spot.
  • Love this place!! Beautiful views, but be prepared to walk!!! If you make it to the end you'll see beautiful tree trunks standing right out of the gulf. Awesome and must see if visiting!!
  • This is my favorite park in Englewood. I love to walk the 1.3 mile path to the pass and take pictures. You never know what type of wildlife you will encounter so every visit is different. I also enjoy launching my kayak from the kayay launch or snorkeling for sea treasures along the coast line.
  • The best beach in Southwest Florida. There are only about 60 parking spaces so there's no overcrowding at this Florida State Park. Since parking is limited you must arrive early to enjoy this park without needing to wait for someone to leave. There's a 1.3 mile walking trail that offers amazing views of wildlife. This park is comprised of 3 barrier islands which can be visited by paddling or by boat. There are several companies offering paddle sports rentals and tours visit SUP Englewood for the best rates.
  • Love nature's gift for all of us to enjoy.
