Very nice quiet beach. Water was very warm and relaxing. There is sea grass and coral so you may want to bring water shoes but don't let that stop you from visiting. There is a small park for kids and bathrooms at the location.

Nice little beach. The visibility was poor due to Atlantic current and waves. This beach was family oriented and clean!

When we arrived we noticed a terrible stench in the air. The beach was full of seaweed and few people enjoying the water. It didn't look like a place we would enjoy, so we walked around a little bit and left. Parking was free.

Sombrero Beach has been cleaned up over the years, nicer facilities have been added and a great park for the kids. The problem with this beach is that it tends to get alot of seaweed and the shore is not so great. Sometimes the water...More

No. There are no docks. There are several areas along the coast, close to Sombrero beach where you can dock, but not on the beach itself.
