This is a real sand beach. It is also free. The water was warm and and calm on our visit. Wasn't a weekend but still quite a few locals. No concessions or lifeguards, but there are bathrooms and changing areas.

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

Beautiful sandy beach, with palm trees and clear water. It slopes gently and is shallow for a good way out, so is safe for children. There is parking on the road and some shaded areas with picnic tables. There are houses nearby but no shops...More

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
