Warm ocean water, beaches are not overly crowded. Restaurants and bars are close by. Plenty of free parking

Great beach for a quieter getaway, not usually crowded, and the water is clear. Nice for an off season destination.

In Sarasota County. Free parking, changing rooms, life guard and covered picnic area with tables. The northern most beach in Englewood. Reached on Manasota Beach Road or by the scenic drive, Beach Road from Englewood beach. One memorable visit we were swimming with Manatees.

You have 10 miles of beach with high rises only at the Venice end and the Englewood end. So a good 8 miles of almost pristine beach!

Great looking water for the west coast. Not murky. Clean sandy bottom with plenty of shelling and shark teeth finds.

Nice beach full of shells, so don't expect the fine white sand of Siesta Key. Easy to get to and easy to park. Restrooms and outdoor showers close-by.

This is old Florida at its finest. Beautiful sandy beach and never too crowded. Best to walk away from public beaches for best experience.

The Tom Adams drawbridge used to access the south end beach is closed this week for upgrades. One needs to access the beach from the north end of the key through this weekend.
