  • If you're looking for a sandy beach in the Keys, this is it! Very well cared for sandy beach. It is good sized and the swimming area is substantial. Lots of places to picnic and play volley ball away....  more

  • I loved this beach. Camping in Everglades and went to Key West for a day trip. Got bored there and ended up at this awesome little beach with my dog. Free parking. Beautiful sand and water. Dog friendly. Will definitely return!
  • Great place to take the dog especially early in the morning before anyone else is there. We took our paddle boards out and just off the beach about 50 yards we had a 4 ft blacktip shark swim right underneath us on a grass flat in about 18" of water! Beach area felt safe though maybe stay in the swim area and off the grass flats further out
