Would go again. We had a good time. limited shade though so it is recommended to bring your own umbrella just in case.

This park has tons of new sand and it dog friendly. Plenty of space to spread out and sun. A favorite of campers for the day only use.

Still yellow taped and closed from the hurricane. A few folks are walking around the tape, but there are no facilities open. Work is ongoing and it will be beautiful again before too long.

Beautiful public beach in Marathon. Badly affected by hurricane and only partially open Jan 2018 Temporary restroom available. About one fifth of beach had been restored and more sand was being added. Beautiful area.

Spent an amazing day in nature with my husband and dog Aspen. Easy hike to the beach so much to see and enjoy. Rock hounding, shell collecting, surf watching. Just a day of simple pleasures.

The beach is open but the rest of the park is not. There are no bathrooms or seating areas. Still beautiful!

Yes most of the beach is covered in feet of sand, they have bulldozing to clean up but have a long way to go. There is a small area open now

No. There are no docks. There are several areas along the coast, close to Sombrero beach where you can dock, but not on the beach itself.
