Our new favorite beach! It's nothing fancy, not even particularly spectacular, but it's sandy, and calm, rarely crowded. Plenty of calm water, albeit with sea grasses just offshore. There's a great large pavilion and several covered picnic areas, along with a playground and clean bathrooms. We've been several times in the past 3 weeks and it's now our "go-to" beach. Oh, and it's Free.

Sunset Beach is a beautiful place to spend time with the family. The waters are gorgeous and the setting absolutely stunning.

We were headed off to Honeymoon Island State Park one afternoon when a local recommended we shorten our drive, save a little money, and check out Sunset Beach instead. The drive was probably half the distance from Dunedin, and the location was idyllic. It was like a little inlet, surrounded by palm trees, with multiple benches close to the water, and a small area of sand to sunbathe.

What Cherry Wonderdog thought was a bit disappointing was, in fact, the sand area which paled in comparison to a hallmark beach. Even in the water (which was too cold for swimming), there were a few rocks and protruded sharp edges that left me slightly uneasy. While many seniors had flocked to this area for quiet solitude to bask in the Florida rays, I am in the contingent of beach goers who need white fluffy sand, big waves, and greater intensity. It was peaceful to read a book though.

I think this is a county beach. There are restrooms, playground structures, and a shelter. There is no concession. There is a soda machine that takes $1 bills or credit cards. Bring your own food and beverages!! There is not much sandy beach area, but the water is easy to access and shallow.

It's a small beach, somewhat hidden out of the way. Parking is free and you definitely can sit on the sand (a narrow strip of sand), and just watch the world go by!

When our grandkids visit we would take them to Sunset Beach for their Florida beach fix and they loved it. The place is great for adults as well as it is significantly less crowded and has spectacular sunsets to boot! The county has it well maintained, equipped with a boat launch, parking, restrooms, outdoor showers, covered picnic areas, and a beautiful beach on the Gulf. What more could you want?

Retirement keeps getting better with each adventure we take.
Four days in Tarpon Springs allowed us to enjoy many wonderful places and Sunset Beach did not disappoint.
Breath taking sunset, beautiful breezes and lots of friendly folks.
I rated 4 out of 5 only because the beach was a bit narrow for our taste but still very useable and clean.

This is a small beach and fine to just put your feet in the water. I love Tarpin Springs for the food and soap shops so when we come I do like to visit this small beach and dip my feet in the water and walk on the sand
