Although called "Anne's Beach", there's really not much of a beach there, but Anne's Beach is a beautiful place nonetheless. (Note to travelers: if you're looking for wide, sandy beaches, go somewhere other than the Florida Keys. But the Keys have so much else to offer!!!)
The water at Anne's Beach is a beautiful blue and crystal clear, and it's shallow for a long way out. The area is dog-friendly, so it's the perfect place to let your dog splash in the water or retrieve toys or coconuts. If you're willing to wade (water shoes are recommended), you can walk along the shore from one end of the beach to the other. (It's best to avoid the areas with underwater grasses so you don't damage it.) There are parking lots at both ends of Anne's Beach. The one at the north end is a little larger and has bathrooms and showers. There's a small sandy area at the north end if you want to put down a beach towel and lie down in the sand.
In addition to the shoreline, Anne's Beach has a mostly-shaded boardwalk through the mangroves, where you can see the pencil roots of black mangroves sticking up through the sand, and huge land crabs running into their holes. We usually see ibises along the shore as well. Off of the boardwalk are a number of shaded picnic pavilions, and each has its own set of steps down to the beach.
