Absolutely love this beach- powdery white sand, shallow waters for a good distance out and warm water! Coming from the North Atlantic side of the country, this beach beats them all! Plenty of parking, rest room facilities, quick snacks and outdoor showers to rinse off....More

Wide beach, white sand, nice parking space, you have to walk to the beach, very suitable for kids as the water level is very low because of this water is 90- 95 degrees.

A wide white sand beach with clear water. The beach is wide and clean for miles. There are restrooms. It is so lovely that of course it is crowed. Be there early or prepared to drive around looking for a spot. This is a must!

This beach has it all. The powdered sugar texture of the sand beneath your feet is quite lovely. There's a snack bar with cheap eats and reasonably priced alcoholic beverages. A must do for families or couples!

What else is there to say except the sand is powder sugar soft, the water is clean and refreshing, and the Sunday night drum circle is loads of fun. You gotta go!!!

We stayed at a condo on the beach with friends and chilled for the time we were there. However, we did go to Sarasota which isn't too far and went to the Ringling Brothers museum. I suggest you check that out along with... More
