  • You pull onto a gravel road off of famed scenic Hwy 30A and drive a little way until parking at a small lot. Then you walk across a remarkably long raised boardwalk (with spaces to rest) across a gorg...  more »
  • The beach is quite and beautiful. The park is very clean and access to the beach is a wonderful walkway over dunes which are protected. We enjoyed our visit. 
  • This is my go to summer spot to lay on the beach. It is a nice bike ride to get there and once there, you will find a beautiful secluded beach. There is a public toilet before you head down to the bea...  more »

  • It's a true gem. Because it has a small fee (5 bucks per vehicle and 2 bucks per bike) it's almost never crowded. It is a beautiful white sand beach on one side and a gorgeous lake on the other side of the dunes. Bring your kayak or paddle boat and you'll spend a terrific day. Highly recommended!
  • Love that it's near the ocean. The beach is pristine and peaceful. Shower house is clean. Giving it 3 stars because the picnic tables are unusable at the campsite. Picnic Table is full of small ants and deteriorated. I went to grab something off the table and got a 3/4 inch wood shard splitter up under my nail bed.
  • Such a beautiful clean, uncrowded beach. Perfect for children to swim and play in the sand. Has clean restrooms, and covered pavilions, a place to shower off. A very nice, even boardwalk leading thru the sand dunes to get to the beach. Many sea oats are growing on the dunes. Water is so clear, but not many shells were found...
  • The first of many FL State Parks we briefly called home. Love the beautiful beaches and well kept grounds. We got hit by a pretty good storm and at one point our site was like a river, but the sand absorbed the water and it was fine within the hour!! Would love to stay here again. Great Verizon coverage.
  • I'm all for throwing a few bucks over to support our State Parks. My friends and I go Kayaking there. We see a lot of SUP/paddle Boarders there too. There's a boat ramp to put in, with good parking. We usually go on the weekends, and Yak all the way thru. Last week, the beach to the Gulf was opened up, and we could go right out into the gulf. We just joined the other people, and set up the beach umbrella, and a few towels, n cooler. All carried out on the yaks. If you have a Hobie Kayak with the fins like me, there was quite a few very shallow spots where I had to pull the fins out. If I could post a pic, it was beautiful.
