There are a lot of private coves as well as a public beach. It is so beautiful and not crowded. Lot's of fishing as well. Parking is very limited

There is one small parking lot, so get there early, with bathrooms. Put kayaks in water right next to the lot. There's beach access to the Gulf, as well as the river. Great kayaking and birding. Also saw several dolphins.

Small parking lot so crowd is limited. Get there early, or later in the afternoon, but they close at sunset and tow cars still there. They have nice clean bathrooms and outdoor showers to rinse off the sand. The area also includes a nature walk

What I loved about this beach is the pathway. Somtimes the parking is crowed. Bathrooms are clean and there are picnic area's.

Dogs are not allowed on the beach. You can however have a leashed dog in the picnic areas.

The park is called "Stump Pass Beach State Park". It's a long hike down to Stump Pass, shorter walk via path or beach to Middle Beach. If you don't want to hike at all, not to worry, the beach is right by the parking lot.
