Manasoda beach is a fantastic beach for finding shells and shark teeth, but that's not all. It has shelters with BQs,restrooms, shower & foot wash station, drink machines picnic areas & a large parking lot. Oh did I mention that it's free!

The Tom Adams drawbridge used to access the south end beach is closed this week for upgrades. One needs to access the beach from the north end of the key through this weekend.
