  • This park is very beautiful and has not been "BOCA-FIED", what I mean it is natural and not "brick pavered" and manicured. It is worth the drive to see Florida's natural beauty, not something that som...  more »
  • Been here many times. Great beach with fine sand. No dropoff - the beach is level all the way out. Beach and bathrooms always clean. When the ocean has no chop it is a great place to snorkel along the...  more »
  • This was awesome! We've been to Ft. Pierce numerous times but have never gone to this beach. The jetty area is a mess right now, so we tried "Pay Beach". It's only $6/car and well worth it! No crowds,...  more »

  • This was a wonderful place to bring my family. my 4yo son had a blast. The beach is a very gentle slope so there's plenty of room to let the kids play without worrying about them going too deep. It was also wasn't crowded and I think we had to pay to park so it was clean and quiet. I didn't have to worry about safety or loud crowds of cursing teenagers or anything like that. I wish we had found this beach sooner than our last day.
  • First visit was Memorial Day Weekend with family and friends. We had a blast. Boaters were all friendly amd beach was kept clean
  • Awesome beach, park and trails, worth the cost. I just get an annual pass so I can visit whenever I feel the need for some Florida sun
  • Best beach around! !!! Worth $6. Right on the inlet. Clean water, playground, restrooms, showers, and 2 different spots to enjoy
  • awesome clean park with good attendants. The accessibility to the inlet and the beach at the same time is nice.
