Cute little beach with kayak launch. One of the few sandy beaches around. It was pretty crowded and parking was difficult, but it was free, the kayak launch area was nice, and the people around us were friendly.

The parking is very close to the beach and showers. This is very family friendly, and easy to haul your things back and forth. You can run back to the car in no time.

Perfect place for the family, very child friendly. Soft sand and gently slopping beach remains shallow for a good distance. Clean restrooms and outdoor showers to get sand off feet. Dog friendly as well.

First time staying in Marathon, and boy are we glad we found this beach tucked away. Great place to spend the day- nice sand, picnic areas with shade and playground if you have kids. You may just see an iguana in the bushes or crossing your path as well. Parking fills up, so get there early.
