With 79 acres (32 ha) of unoccupied white sandy beaches, Tigertail Beach sits alongside a tidal lagoon. The beach hosts water sports galore, and you can rent paddleboards and kayaks by the hour. Considered one of the best all-around bird watching spots in southwest Florida, the beach is a critical habitat for migrating and indigenous birds, including herons, pelicans, and egrets. Deck chairs and tiger-striped cabanas are available to rent for the day. Families will appreciate the playground and cafe on site.

  • Beautiful! Definitely make the trek/wade across the water to the other side of the beach!!! It's worth it!  more »
  • Beach reached wading the lagoon. The beach is worth for both flora and fauna for landscape and shells. The water being August is hot and that's why I recommend going in the morning and be within 16 because the water in the lagoon is very hot. Excellent facilities near the parking lot.

  • Took the family to Tigertail beach for the day. It was a really long walk to get there but it was beautiful. Make sure to bring your own supplies. And an umbrella would be a good idea.  more »
