  • Beautiful beach, specially in low tide, you have no be careful if you have small children because the current is very strong. It's also a great spot for fishing, wich works out perfectly if you like to fish while your family enjoys the beach.

  • Great place for fishing. The water is stunning. Parking can be tricky but once you find a spot you can walk back and forth across the bridge. The current makes for excellent fishing but if you're bringing kids I recommend crossing the bridge to Captiva. The water is calmer. We've brought our dogs there before and never had an issue. If you're staying in the area I would definitely make the trip out there. It's what southwest Florida is all about!
