Sunset at Pine Island
Oct 2020 • Friends
We always enjoy watching the sunset from Pine Island. Plenty of space to social distance. The water was beautiful. People were wading, swimming, fishing and playing in the playground. All areas are kept clean.

Sweet Little Spot
Sep 2020
This is a sweet little spot. We came on a Tuesday and were greeted by a very happy ranger taking the $5 parking fee (best guess about 100 spaces) and explaining amenities. If there was more beach to take a longer walk on, I’d give it the 5th star. The beach however is groomed. Mostly the sand is surrounded by sea wall, so there’s not much shelling. There are places to enter the water and some little tykes were playing at the water’s edge. A few palm trees provide some shade. Restroom was usual bare bones but clean. Separate changing areas are available. There are quite a few covered picnic tables. If you want to fish, there are designated places. And Willy’s Tropical Breeze Cafe (Cash Only) had a surprising large menu for a little walk up. Not fancy fare but service was friendly and it’s just a cute spot for eating at colorful picnic tables there shaded by grass Tiki type umbrellas. I was about an 70 min drive from north Tampa, but we enjoyed that drive better than the one out to the string of west Pinellas county beaches. We will return. Heads up, on weekends , especially in tourist season, it fills quickly and cars are turned away. The day we came there were probably about 20 vehicles at 11 am.

Family place, wading area, not too deep
Jul 2020 • Solo
They have a flat concrete/ sand area that is great for little ones and their parents. This is not what I call a real beach situation, and it doesn’t get deep until you go way out in the gulf. There are markers for deeper water. I did have a little trouble getting my umbrella anchored. It is fine sand and not real deep. They have an outdoor cafe, but BRING cash because an ATM will charge you fees, plus your own home bank, to get money out. There is a $5 fee to park until 4:30 PM. After that, they don’t take money for parking. There are covered areas, grills, showers, a bathroom and spigots to rinse off. Also, a kids playground. People say it’s a great place to watch the sunset.

Beach day
Feb 2020 • Couples
Cute little beach with palm trees and great place to grab a cute lunch if you don’t pack one. Not many beaches in Spring Hill and glad our friends told us about this. You pay 5.00 for the day to park but if it fills up they will turn you away. They need a bigger parking lot to accommodate the crowds

Ok for a beach day
Jul 2019 • Family
I don't recommend swimming here, but it is a close local beach. You have to pay for parking and space is usually limited.

Beautiful sunsets
Dec 2019 • Solo
This was a nice park. Nothing fancy but it's a non touristy gem. The facilities were adequate and landscape and drive to it were very scenic. Perfect place to ride out and watch stellar sunsets.
