Nice beach, dog-friendly

Beautiful park, nice beach, allows dogs. A great place to spend the day while visiting Marathon Key. We went twice.

We heard so much about this beach and read that it was long ranked among the top 10 beaches in Florida, but honestly speaking, it didn't convince us. It is nice, yes, but ...

We visited Sombrero Beach and it was a wonderful experience. Not only was the beach very clean and they actually had play structures for children. Plus the bathrooms were very clean. They also had picnicking areas and they even had public, no charge parking.

Walked there everyday along with walking the streets of the residential area that surrounds it. Gorgeous beach with nice views. Small though and may be crowded on weekends.

Stopped on the way to Key West. Clean and not too crowded. Seemed to have both locals and tourists enjoying the sand and waves. Just off US 1.

You can't beat this well maintaining public beach for a day of swimming and snorkeling. It has lots of parking, showers and clean bathrooms and playground for the kids PLUS it is pet friendly

We spent a morning into early afternoon at this beach. Very nice public space for couples and families. Nice sandy beach and spacious picnic area and park equipment for kids to play.

Even on a cloudy day you can walk the quiet and mostly empty beach. After that take the time to visit the park between the beach and the street. Plenty of benches under cover to read, talk, or enjoy the surroundings. As you walk the sidewalks, notice the footprints of native wildlife pressed into the cement in interesting ways. If... More

We explored this beach a little and we went for sunset photos too. At the very end of the road, there is a dock and we got great pictures there. It is very crowded and parking is a pain. My opinion is it is best to get there EARLY morning, set up a spot, and leave by 12-1:00. We noticed... More

We were at this beach in February. Nice sand with beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Park location and great for families. You must go there when in Marathon.
