Please notice the website for this place only has 3 photos. There is not a 4th good photo you could take. Was there as the tide was coming in and the water was brown but decent visibility, maybe 20 ft. in any direction. I saw a decent sized stingray, a few little fish, and one strange fish, I think might be a gobi. Somehow I saw not a single sea shell.
The place is ok if you're already up in Hernando County for some other reason, but not worth making a trip for.

We have been many times this summer, more than any other summer before! What keeps us coming back, is that it is an awesome beach for young children, not over crowded, clean, nice to spend a few hours and not have to pay a ton for parking. Sunsets are beautiful. It's fun to go durning the day and play or for an evening to grill out dinner.

Pine Island is a beautiful place to watch the sunset, observe crabs, starfish, hermit crabs, baby blowfish, and other little sea creatures. Many evenings, the dolphins come in to feed and frolic around. There are picnic shelters, but never enough for the immense number of people there. Many times, the parking lot has to be closed because it is full. The water is rather still and very warm, feeling like a warm bathtub. For some, this may be a plus. There is plenty of beach space, a volleyball area, playground, and a snack bar. Bathrooms are not too bad and there are a couple outdoor showers and foot washes. As the title suggests, Pine Island has some good points and some not so good points which is why it earned an average rating.

I think the previous comment is completely correct! This is one of the nicest beaches I have ever been to. We lived in the West Palm Beach area for 10 years and moved to central Florida 4 years ago so we have visited many Florida beaches. This weekend was the first time we ventured to the west coast beaches and we were very suprised. We have 2 little boys, ages 3 and 4, and the water was a perfect depth for them to play. Its like a huge sand bar. The water will get a bit deeper when the tide comes in, but it is a very quiet beach. I think most of the people who go there live in the area. We found it by accident looking for something not so commercialized- and we found it! We will definately be back. Totally worth our drive to go there and spend the day. The bathrooms are clean, and the beach is clean, and quiet. There is a big playground for the kids if they are tired of the water, and lots of covered pavillions to eat at. The sand is soft and not filled with tons of shells and washed up garbage like some of the more popular east coast beaches. My boys were thrilled at the dolphins we saw as we were leaving in the evening.
