Great beach

Many rental umbrellas and lounges a lot with pads. Sand is cleaned regularly and I'm very soft. Access is very easy from all of the condos and hotels.

It is a gorgeous beach --- in the morning it's a great place to walk, jog or collect shells (see photos)---- while in the evening it is the perfect place to view one of those famous Southwest Florida sunsets (photo).

Beautiful white sandy beach down by the main hotels (Mattoitt and Hilton) which tends to make it a little crowded at times however the beach is wide and well maintained. Faces the gulf so the sunsets can be beautiful.

You want some shells, a great sunset view, and local feel? This is the beach to come too! There are no easy facilities for a potty break so be mindful of that before you drag all your stuff out on the sand. We rate this a must visit! Give it a 4 since they have no facilities.

The beach can be crowded and parking an issue in the summer months, but most of the time it is quite peaceful. You may want to wear shoes as there are a lot of little shells. Outstanding sunset views, even an occasional green flash

Although along a congested hotel boulevard, this beach is worth a visit. Beautiful walking and relatively calm waters.

This is a very pretty beach, but can get pretty crowded. The sand is very soft and you can walk forever! Parking can be a bit tricky if you don't get there early!

This is a beautiful beach, very wide and expansive with lots of shells but fine, powdery sand. Just loved it!

Continuing to be a pleaser, this beach delivers on views, sand, shelling, dolphins frolicking and so much beauty to walk in. Amazing. Not crowded. Peaceful. Make your day what you want it to be and forget the rest of the world.
