Sombrero Beach has water as clear as the Caribbean . Family friendly. Picnic tables available. No charge for admittance . Be sure to get there as early as possible as parking fills up quickly.

Good sand beach that includes a park area that is grassy. Picnic tables are ample, as is the parking. This may be the only public access to a beach on the Atlantic side...........follow Sombrero Boulevard off of Highway 1.

Very nice public beach. Bring your own refreshments (no concession stand) and enjoy. We went while our husbands golfed at the nearby golf course. Nice park area with shade, playground, etc along beach. It's not a huge beach and I'm it's very busy on weekends or hotter days.

We heard so much about this beach and read that it was long ranked among the top 10 beaches in Florida, but honestly speaking, it didn't convince us. It is nice, yes, but ...

We visited Sombrero Beach and it was a wonderful experience. Not only was the beach very clean and they actually had play structures for children. Plus the bathrooms were very clean. They also had picnicking areas and they even had public, no charge parking.

Walked there everyday along with walking the streets of the residential area that surrounds it. Gorgeous beach with nice views. Small though and may be crowded on weekends.

Stopped on the way to Key West. Clean and not too crowded. Seemed to have both locals and tourists enjoying the sand and waves. Just off US 1.

You can't beat this well maintaining public beach for a day of swimming and snorkeling. It has lots of parking, showers and clean bathrooms and playground for the kids PLUS it is pet friendly
