What an absolute hidden gem! I had no idea this place even existed until my friend told me about it. It’s definitely one of the best places to watch the sunset in Tampa. It is a park but also a beach, I wouldn’t recommend it...More

Had a great Easter Sunday with the family and children. Did an Easter Egg Hunt and all the children enjoyed it...Everyone got in the water and had a great time jet-skiing! It was also a beautiful sunny day! Definitely a must go!
