Visited the coast while in Florida. Loved well the weather, the short walk to water and peacefulness. Of course it was sunset on a Sunday in January. Went to pier too and loved the wooden structure and art. Nice place to visit.

We've been going here for years, unfortunately it's become over crowded and so commercialized. I guess that's what happens to cute beach towns!

I found this beach to be a little crowded for my tastes. There were lots of people and activities going on everywhere. Parking was minimal and expensive. Nice sand and water though.

Beach was busy but was still nice for walking & looking for shells. Early morning walks were nice. Water was cold, so I didn’t swim.
