  • This is a nice, sandy beach with rest facilities and tennis courts. Across the street is a playground area and a small lagoon where manatees and dolphins can sometimes be seen.  more »
  • this is just a small section of beach dedicated to MAry McLeod Bethune. If you're staying on the beach you already have beach access.  more »
  • Found this little gem of a park while out for a drive. It's very clean. We spent 1.5 hrs there watching dolphin. Great place  more »

  • This beach is not bad but not the area you want to relax swimming in, due to the waves being monstrous and sometimes overwhelming. If you want to surf or boogie board, this place is a 4 star for sure. The beach itself is long and wide and over many miles long. Parking is good until pack but best times are after 5pm or early morning.
  • Went there today from 2-5pm. Beach was clean, lifeguard was friendly. Parking was so easy and Free! The beach was not packed at all. Plenty of room, very family oriented. Bathrooms were clean. There were two shower heads outside bathrooms. Good pressure and got the job done. I will defiantly be bringing my family back again.
  • Quiet and fun to explore but still a bit dangerous to those who don't know the area!
  • serenity at its finest great surf break, col spot to just hang for the day worth the drive
  • Great place for a beach day. Park extends from beach to river with multiple pavilions tennis and basketball courts as well as a playground. You can often view manatees in the cove and many times during the day there is a lifeguard at the beach.
