Calusa Beach, Big Pine Key

3.6
#12 of 15 in Beaches in Florida Keys
Bring your whole family to Calusa Beach, as it's child-friendly with shallow and calm waters, restroom and shower facilities, and concessions. Albeit not very big, this beach is known for its beauty, so come early to get a spot at one of five picnic table shelters. Then spend your time snorkeling, wading, and swimming. Don't worry about parking, as there are abundant parking lots nearby. Get food, refreshment, and souvenirs at the stalls on the beach itself.

  • Been at this beach after searches for beaches in the keys islands. Surely the keys offer much less sea than one expects: there are fantastic piers, marinas everywhere, boats, yachts, jet skis... but of beaches (of those as we mean in Italy), well... you've got the wrong place. Here you have to come for the context, for nature, for the beauty of life in Florida, to eat and cuddle. But not for the beaches. Done this small note I can say that Calusa Beach was not bad at all: clean sea in the morning, a little less in the afternoon (here at this time the seaweed covers all the beaches), services, rental umbrellas if necessary (here when c and the sun is hot x really) , sandy beach, easy to get there, good number of tourists but livable. Here. Here there are NOT places in the shade (no palm trees, no lying down or umbrellas) so have something to shelter from the sun. Nice experience!
