  • Amazing! Picnic and barbeque area for family get togethers. Most beautiful were the Manatees swimming very close as well as sighting of dolphins near. This was actually my favorite beach. I can't wait to visit again!
  • Had an awesome time with my baby. Sweet, cute beaches. Awesome waves. Cool rocks!!! Pretty chill, not crowded. Lots of parking, vegetation and pretty good bathrooms.
  • Excellent beach. our favorite for surfing and family fun. Volunteer staff is the best. The place is always clean and well maintained.
  • The short pathway through the woods is one of the most beautiful nature pathways I've seen in years. Coming from Michigan, the Florida fauna was exceptionally beautiful, especially all the Sabal Palm trees that were truly resplendent amount the Hercules Club trees, Live Oak many others. The small beach makes for great walking and the birds, most gulls, egrets and terns, along the ocean, as well as beautiful sea shells made for a lot of fun.
  • Just beautiful! You won't find a better beach.
