Beautiful. The views are gorgeous. Plenty of beach to e joy. The water is crystal clear. Gorgeous and clean. Plenty of trash so no excuse to leave any garbage behind. Restrooms on sight. Grills and a big park area were a bonus. Covered picnics areas. Wonderful playground. Seaweed smells sometimes depending on the season. Great place to put your kayaks in at. Mangroves across from beach have cool tunnels that lead to lakes to explore. Lots of great fishing! Tons of yellow and mangrove snapper. Beautiful beach.
Today we went to Sombrero Beach for the first time. It's a beautiful stretch of beach with white sand and clear blue water. At one end of the beach, is a rocky peninsula where several people were fishing. If you jump in the water around this area, you can also see plenty of fish swimming around the rocky reef. Just past the rocky peninsula is a dock where several people were launching their small boats and paddle boats. There isn't any cover against the sun so you will need to bring a beach umbrella. There is also a section that contains two beach volleyball courts, covered pavilions, changing rooms, and showers.
