This beach is the go to beach of anyone who lives within a couple of hours. We always take family visitors, etc to it when they come down. It is a magnificent beach, wide area to water, long and wide beach, and a very big parking lot. The only thing that I can say negative is that the parking lots gets very full very quick on weekends. I have not been there on a weekday since they doubled the size of the lot but on the weekend of April 21 it was nuts. We actually ended up going to lunch in siesta key first, then parking there and ubering to the beach. The beach however was fantastic. The sun was shining, the water was excellent (Only a bit cold for the Floridians), and there was plenty of room to set up on the beach. A great way to spend a Saturday in April.

Great sand!! Like talc powder. Would love to go back and explore more. The parking was not bad. There is a pavilion with restrooms. You can also grab a bite to eat. There was a play ground and shade. I'd take some flip flops the first few trees discard prickly stuff before you start to walk toward the water.

Wow! Lives up to its reputation, as far as I'm concerned. Clean and attractive facilities, FREE and plentiful parking (at least during our visit), clean beach, ton of room to do all sorts of beach "things." Top of our list for favorite beaches. May have to move to Sarasota!
