The location is a bit off. Visit the Durante park on your way. There is a cafe where you can buy a beer. Funny to see how much junk people bring. You would think they are camping for a week

The beach is typical Florida. People here not friendly. Have traveled and lived all over the country. Florida the East Coast and the people here are the worst. Try another part of the country. The West Coast cant be beat!!!

We visited on a saturday, it was very busy! Beautiful white sandy beach. There are bathrooms and changing rooms available. Where we parked there was an ice cream shop. Lifeguards are on duty. Great place to spend the day.
