Super family beach with young children. The sand gives way to very firm mud rather quickly but the exceptionally gradual decline makes for very shallow water, just what I want with toddlers and young kids. Small, inshore and nit much surf, good for kids and...More

I can’t speak for the sunsets, but as far as a beach it is very narrow and not very pretty. It was rather quiet for a Saturday afternoon which would be a plus and there were many picnic tables. But I would not go to...More

It was a small beach that over looks the gulf. It has nice park with plenty of picnic tables. Also, a pavilion and benches around the beach. The sand has a ton of broken sea shells, that hurts a bit to walk on.

The family and I come here often... normally after work/school to unwind, search for hermit crabs, and of course watch the amazing sunsets. Lots of benches to watch the big event.

It's certainly a lot easier to get to for us than say Clearwater with all the traffic. It's a little tricky to find with the winding roads but that's what GPS is for. It's only $5.00 to park all day and they have plenty of...More

This is a quiet beach to relax and enjoy a beautiful Florida day. Don’t forget to bring a picnic and enjoy the sunset. Always plenty of free parking! This is a getaway from the crowded beaches. Enjoy!

With so many amazing beaches around this amazing area why would you pay to visit a beach? Ok you have to drive over a causeway to get here but it’s no different from other local beaches. Do yourselves a favour and park for free elsewhere...More

We have taken sunset cruises in Tarpon Springs before but skipped this year. We decided to take one in from the shore this year and were not disappointed. Luckily we got one of the benches facing directly towards the sunset, be sure to get there...More

Definitely a solo beach, not enough room for much else. Water is muddy & not good for swimming. Sand is nice & good for a walk, but keep it solo or couples for some peace & regeneration. Very little parking. NOT RECOMMENDED FOR GROUPS OR...More

The water was stagnant and we didnt find any waves to move the water. Nice showers outdoors to cool you off. Good picnic tables under awnings though. Clean restrooms.
