  • The parking here is horrible. The beach itself was just ok. There were a lot of dead fish on the beach that smelled terrible. They also had a lot of signs that said no swimming because of strong currents. Lots of shells, but you probably have to come early to get the good ones. There's a ton of people here, all with very professional shelling equipment, which I found really funny.
  • Great beach for shelling Also if you fish the bridge great snook fishing in red fishing
  • We had a fun time looking for shells. If you go under the bridge and keep walking you will find a bunch. Didn't find much on the Captiva side. The water is beautiful but it says not to swim because of the currents. People did anyway.
  • Gr8 place to dolphin watch. Take a kayak out & you can practically touch them.
  • Not enough parking. Great for fishing, but no swimming due to high currents. Shelling is just OK
