Henderson beach is one of the best in Florida. It’s always clean, and you feel secure with the nice park rangers on patrol. I appreciate there clean restrooms.

I was amazed I could walk barefoot with no concerns. This is an extremely clean beach. This visit made for a very relaxing afternoon on the weekend to sit on the beach and read.
