Few amenities here; restroom is a long walk from the beach. No refreshments being sold nearby so bring your own treats and supplies. Beautiful white sand and clear water. but the walk from the parking lot to the beach is difficult.

Looking for some beach time? Pack a cooler, grab your towels and a beach umbrella and enjoy the beautiful beach. Whether you like swimming, shelling or sunning, you should be able to find a way to relax out here. And who knows, maybe you'll spot some playful dolphins off the shore.

Wonderfull beach on beautiful Gasparella Island in Florida. Great views, clear blue Gulf of Mexico water and easy to get to. Bring a blanket and stand tan oil. The rest is up to you.....and you will not be bugged by people trying to sell you something carved out of a coccanut ......

We went early to the end of the island State Park Beach. It was quiet and not crowded - perfect. By the time we left there was no parking and the beach was crowded. The only drawback to this beautiful area is the fishing right off the beach - definitely not a fan. We did see a sheephead as well... More

My husband and I went to Boca Grande to check out the beach because he had been there as a child. Nice sand beaches with huge piles of shells. It does cost $6 to cross the bridge and $3 to park for the day. Get there early because there are not that many parking spots. The restaurants on the island... More

Amazing day on the water! We went to Cabbage Key by boat for a meal and then over towards Charlotte Harbor. We spotted dolphins, turtles and many fish jumping in and out of the water. Look at the pictures below and see a very friendly dolphin. We saw him in the water at the tip of boca grande between Caya... More

Even when it is busy it is never crowded. Kids love it but watch for the surf, it can be rough with a strong undertow. Lovely beach to walk at sunset. Excellent shells can be found and beach stretches for miles and miles. Several years ago one of the residents on the beach took a photo of my husband and... More

We thought we would check out the beach this year we've been told about it a few times it wasn't real busy but parking spaces were few and far between One thing you need to know if you need to use the restroom the lighthouse is the only one available to the public everything else is for the tourist resorts...

Went there last week. Beach is gorgeous- shelling is so so. Our only couple issues were parking is terrible- had to drive around multiple times. Did meet a local who said next time park on a side street (short walk) we can see this being a major issue during busier seasons. We happened to go at a Red Tide (which... More
