A tiny city beach at the end of a short causeway. Mostly only locals go there. They have a boat ramp, a several large concrete gazebos, a central facilities building, a beach volleyball court and plenty of free parking. They have nice white sand beach and the water is really shallow and transitions to algae and muck 20 feet from... More

We go here often and enjoy the sunset, clear water and beautiful views. It is good for a short walk or just to chill out.

We visited this beach twice during our stay. The first time, our view was spoiled when clouds moved in an hour before sunset. The second time. the sunset was spectacular. The beach has beautiful white sand, pavilions and barbecues, as well as showers and washrooms. It seems to be a favorite spot for para-surfing, as there were 10 to twelve... More

Took some other reviewers advice and tried this out on a busy holiday weekend. Not that well signposted for visitors but maybe no bad thing as we were able to park car ok. Small but Sandy beach with good swimming. Great Gulf view too, and plenty of shade, tables, and toilets.

Bring your lawn chair and camera. You won't be disappointed. Better shots when there are some clouds. Relax and enjoy.

We had a large family gathering at Sunset Beach. The picnic area is great. The coverings over the tables is an added bonus. Restrooms are clean and a reasonable distance from the eating area. The beach is clean. The water is a bit shallow and not as clean as other areas but the kids had a blast. It's a fantastic... More

We discovered this little piece of Heaven through TripAdvisor reviews and were not disappointed. After an entirely too-crowded visit to Clearwater Beach, Sunset Beach was the perfect place to get our beach on without all the chaos. The beach is smaller and rockier, but the benches are fantastic, parking is good, and the views are spectacular.

Causeway road to a point out in the Gulf with panoramic views in this public park makes for fabulous views as the sun slowly sets to the west into the Gulf's horizon.
