    White beach and surrounded by a large park. Along the way can be found of the turtles. The sea does not rise, it seems to take a bath in a swamp (water and green). Recommended for a walk through the nature and many villas are in the way of arrival. Not recommended for those who want to enjoy the beach and take a bath.

    We suggest you arrive earlier than 9:30am on a weekend, holiday, or during the winter months. On the 4th of July, we arrived at 9:30am and after a 20 minute delay getting to the gate, it was 9:50am and the parking lot was full. They let us park at the boat ramp. It was about 1/2 mile from the beach. The beach sand is narrow, though with limited parking the area not too crowded. The water is clearer than most SW Florida beaches. I would like to suggest 2 money takers to speed up the entry process.

    This park was awesome! We came from miami expecting a sunset. Unfortunately for us the day ended up cloudy. However the park was beautiful, the beach access is right next to where you park. It has a small beach but it's perfect for a fun day with friends, family or even a significant other. The water was warm and there was some small fish in the water (they're harmless). That was probably due to the season (first time there I wouldn't know). But also we saw a falcon and we got to see it in action. We would have to go again and see what else we can explore in the park! Definitely recommend it.

    Very clean beach and water. Never too crowded. They have picnic tables and grills for guests to use during their stay. Bathrooms and charging areas are as clean as they be, being at beach cause of the sand that still makes it way in. But all in all very relaxing and enjoyable place to spend the day.

    If you are ready for a adventure this is not the place. Pretty much several parking lots for beach access. I peeked my head out to beach (had a dog, not allowed) and seen maybe 15 feet of sand. Be sure to cover up bugs are horrible. There was some nice plants..

    Fantastic state park! Friendly park rangers ($6 to park) and parking lots are close to the beach. Quiet and serene and just nature to your back when you're facing the beautiful ocean.
