  • Anclote Key is basically nothing but a beach with a google of shells. Anclote Key is at the eastern end of the Gulf of Mexico. If you like beaches, what better than "all beach." If you like collecting...  more »
  • Take your boat to the west side of the island, drop anchor and enjoy. Can head to the beach and set up for a picnic, hanging out, whatever. Go during the week and you may be one of the only boats out ...  more »
  • This is a beautiful place! We lucked out with the perfect weather for camping. It took longer to get there by kayak than I expected, but I'm not an avid kayaker. It took us 2 hours to kayak there & 3 ...  more »
  • We love parking the boat on the leeward side of the sandbar and in a just a few steps you are on a beautiful white sand beach. There Are an amazing variety of bird's to watch. Go on the weekend if you like to people watch. My preference is to go on a weekday and have quite pricey, you can be king of your own little slice of paradise.
  • Anclote Key is an island that is only accessible by boat. There's miles of beautiful beach for shelling or just hanging out with friends. There's a lighthouse that you can walk to with several informative history and nature displays along the boardwalk/path. Great place for a day excursion.
  • Great park to swim and motor boat. It's on the inlet side of the power plant so the manatees then to go to the other side or up river to the springs. Parking can be limited at times. Small boats(kayaks) can be launched but it has major traffic so not for the beginners.
  • $5 BOAT RAMP. lots of parking. River has a pretty good current which makes docking fun at times. Steep ramp, so if you have a big boat better have 4 wheel drive.
  • Arrived on the island as a part of a 2 hour tour. We spent about 45 minutes on the island and it is such a beautiful place. My daughter had a blast shelling we found very unique shells. It was not crowded at all and it was clean. I hope to get back out there again.
