  • I sat in the shade while my wife and son took to the beach. Very comfortable as I read a book and they got plenty of sun.  more »
  • We returned after about a decade. It’s as pretty as remembered. Pay hourly parking is ok. Appreciate an outside shower & real restrooms in parking lot. Several paths from parking lot to beach...  more »

  • A must visit beach! If you are in the Fort Myers/Cape Coral area, this is the place to visit. The beach is composed of beautiful white sand. There, you can find countless of sea shells to collect. It’s a Long Beach, so you can enjoy walking for a decent time if you are interested in that activity. Definitely recommend this beach!!
  • Haven't been here in a while and was pleasantly surprised with all the updates. Bathrooms are clean. Pavilions to site under. Handicap access to beach for grandma. Awesome.
