This beach is great for shelling! It's not overly crowded any time we've gone. You can walk for miles and miles and collect shells, fish, and swim

This beach is what Florida is all about. We loved the absence of hotels, just sand and waves. We found some nice shells,too. The beach was clean, as was the whole park. I thought it was worth the 8.00 fee.
