  • Always something interesting going on.Beautiful place to see the sunrise or watch the fisherman bring in their proud catch. Good parking with clearly marked areas to walk over the dunes. 
  • On a nice stretch of beach without high-rise apartments/condos, and open to surfers and swimmers alike, this is a beautiful beach. But for $8/car to enter the park, we expected the beach to be cleaner...  more »
  • What a fun day we had renting kayaks at the recreation center. High tide was fun but low tide was a blast.

  • Awesome surf. Great people. Bath house to change very clean. Awesome!
  • 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!
  • 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.
  • Great place to relax and enjoy the water, fishing or take a walk with great restaurants and music close
  • Beautiful beaches. Great prices.
