We were pleasantly surprised how much we liked this beach. We are from Fort Myer Beach/Sanibel Island area. We really liked the sand here. Nice wide beach. We wish it wasn't so far from where we live.

We like to come down in September school is back in and the beach and town is less crowded. As usual, the beach did not disappoint! Gorgeous aqua blue colors and sandy white beaches are always a welcome sight.

What can I say? Weather was beautiful, beach always beautiful, and well, you're at the beach!!!! We have never been disappointed when you are on the gulf side. Generally this is one of the clearest water beaches we have enjoyed.

Beautiful clear water and soft white sand. You can't ask for anything better. As close to the Caribbean as you will find. Sand dollars and shells too. We love PCB
