One of the best beaches in Florida and a must stop while on the island. New parking lots and cut throughs make it easier to get to the beach.

We spent a day at this beach. The sand was more hard packed than some beaches, which made it easier to walk on, but not so hard that it was uncomfortable. Very clean beach with a family friendly atmosphere.

The beach is perfect, fine white sand, very wide beach and there is always plenty of space, Dolphins are seen on many days, with sea eagles, ospreys, pelicans,egrets etc are always on show. The sunsets are a must see, absolutely stunning, a free show on most evenings

I like space. Lots of it. South Beach is usually full of people on deckchairs (great if that's what you like) and it's overlooked by highrise hotels and condos. Not my thing I'm afraid. Much prefer Tigertail Beach further north.
