A beautiful secluded beach close to Tarpon Springs. Quiet, picturesque, clean - everything you would expect. Some shaded areas for picnic and a respite from the sun.

I whent here every weekend with my dad and would stay here for hours on end fishing, tanning, exploring, and swimming. There is also a park to play at next to a pear. So you can fish while your kid plays.

Super family beach with young children. The sand gives way to very firm mud rather quickly but the exceptionally gradual decline makes for very shallow water, just what I want with toddlers and young kids. Small, inshore and nit much surf, good for kids and...More
