We arrived about 9 am and found this beach to be so lovely, clean and pretty! People didn’t begin arriving until about 10:30 with their wagon loads and kids in tow. It’s a shelling paradise for sure! We liked the fact that they offered life...More

Beautiful shells, salty water and the sound of the ocean. Walked along the shore and collected seashells in the morning and swam in the afternoon Enjoyed sunsets from the terrace with a glass of wine in the evening

Went to Marco island on a day trip. Tried to find the public Beach area and was tricky to find but after asking around we found the parking lot and walkway to the beach. Parking is $8 all day, even if you stay 2 hours....More

The water is crystal clear and you can see the fish while diving. Very nice white sand beach. A bit crowded.

Excellent shelling beach. The only complaint I would have is there is not enough parking. Come early so you can get a parking place.

If you are using Public Access , probably back to car and nearest gas station. I doubt you can walk into a nearby hotel restroom.
