Hard to find when using Google maps. Look for crosswalks. $3.00 parking fee. Beautiful beach with unbelievable shells and shark teeth. Can be very cool when there is no sun.

Actually the shells were everywhere. Relatively uncrowded beach/nature preserve. Loved the views and the breeze. There were a few who had been out surfing, and a few out walking but mostly people digging through the shells.

Great beach, little traffic, although you do virtually take your life into your hands to cross the highway to get into the park. It's a roll of the dice whether the snowbirds will yield to you or not...otherwise the beach itself is absolutely gorgeous

I have been going to Guana for many years. I was just there last weekend. If you are planning on fishing the dam, get there early and be prepared to arm wrestle to keep your spot. What's pretty cool is just when you think you've...More
