Relaxing-

There were a lot of people searching for shells and shark teeth. Nice facilities for cleaning up and restrooms. Parking was easy and free. There was a strong odor on the beach.

Good beach for walking . Long, wide and sand is hard. Many people sun bath, shell, and fish. No smoking on this beach but there is a life guard on duty and no fee for parking.

This beach is wide and long, which leads to not being as crowded as other beaches in the area. Also free parking. Nice rest rooms.

The north end of the key is residential and therefore more quiet.ample room for a party of two or twenty. Has a nice pavilion that can be used for parties or picnics. Restrooms are kept nice and clean. A day at the beach is always a good day

Nice place for recreation. Dont try to use "the other side of the walkway" to get back to the parking lot, because there s only one way! :)
