Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park Reviews
This beach is just surrounded by natural beauty. This is a beach that’s protected and not commercialized. I come as often as I can! more »
Beautiful and clean with tables under the shade of trees 🌳 where you can grill and have a picnic. Parking is close by and entrance $6-$8 per car. I recommend this beach 🏖! Water was crystal clear.... more »
Beautiful beautiful beach. Easy to park, get food, and find bathrooms. For years we’ve seen cool animals and found nice seashells over there. Very peaceful and relaxing spot. We always enjoy our time here.
Wonderful beach to go to. It has everything you need in the park: water, fun, restrooms, showers, a bit of food to buy, etc. Plenty of seashells to find (including some that may be small conch & are nice to display). We've even been approached by dolphins during previous visits when we were hanging out on the sandbar. Even when the beach is pretty full, it doesn't feel like it, as everyone has plenty of space. As seen in the later pictures, this time was a tiny bit frustrating as a group of 20 somethings decided to sit right directly in between us and the water, even though there were MANY other spots open to them. They saw it wasn't a nice thing to do, mentioned that it probably made us mad, but they didn't care. Them being between us and the water made it a bit harder to watch our little ones as they were in the water, but one or both of us were in the water with them most of the time. Clearly people can sit wherever they'd like, but if there are plenty of water front spots to sit, generally it's not very nice to sit in between someone else and the water. Eh... ultimately, it happens and wasn't a huge deal... not everyone is going to follow social constructs the way they should... hopefully they will learn someday. Bottom line, even with an occasional challenge or two, it's still one of the best beaches to go in southern Florida, and we'll be back time and time again!
