We visited Sombero Beach and were impressed with the nice picnic areas and restroom facilities on site. The beach has plenty of room for a lot of people so you are not sitting right next to someone. Half of the beach is still closed due...More

This was a nice experience during our vacation in Florida. This beach was really calm, nice coral sand, easy parking, toilets and shade possibilities. We spent several days here enjoying the swim

There aren't really many true beaches in the Keys. This one is worth the drive to. White sand, lots of places to lay out, fairly clean water to cool off in. good family atmosphere

Great beach lots to look at given the shape of the beach, natural coral and turquoise water, hurricane did a lot of damage here but they have done some clean up and are still working on other sections. Lots of free parking.

They had very nice ones. Irma did a job on all of the beach facilities. Don’t know when things will be repaired and back to normal.

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
