Beautiful walk along the bayside and then around the point and along the beachside - great views! Be mindful of the tide, if the tide is high, you will not be able to walk along the beach side.

It’s really annoying when you are greeted at a state park with a FULL sign. We’ve heard it’s beautiful for those who manage to get in before they stop allowing people in. The area is clearly overbuilt and lacking adequate parking and infrastructure. We wasted...More

Believe it or not, that was all it cost for all-day parking and a visit! Superb walking trails, beautiful beaches, and super-clean washrooms! Everything you need for a great day in the sun well-spent.

My favorite beach in this location. Because there is limited parking, there are not many people, and that is very nice. On my next visit to Englewood I will definitely come back here :-)

Parking is at a premium but worth the wait. A short walk to the beach that is very uncrowded or the bay to kayak, paddle boarding or fishing. The facilities are very clean as are all Florida state parks

The news is showing heavy red tide in that area. Visit Snooki haven not too far away if the beach is bad
