  • This is a great beach that is close to everything. Do come early, even with great parking a few blocks away, it can get filled up. Superb facilities, restrooms, shower, picnic areas and a great beach. Don’t forget to pay the machine for parking, and the rest of your day will be bliss. The next beaches with an easier time parking are a ways out from the action. I recommend this beach to everyone.
  • My favorite beach in sanibel!! I love blind pass but i think this one tops it, unless i just got lucky the day i went because it was shortly after we had a couple of windy days. There was a goldmine of seashells! I was in heaven. So many of them had a critter inside so i put them back in the water but i did get some beautiful ones to bring home! I also saw 4 live starfish that i put back in…. sadly later on i found one that didn’t make it 😭 The only downside was parking is $5 an hour
