“Great beach...easy access”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

If you are in Marco Island, and are looking for a public beach to go to...try this one. There are two public beaches and this one is the best.
Parking is relatively close to the beach.But there is a fee for parking. The fee entitles you to access to both public beaches.
Bring drinks and food, because there is only one restaurant on the beach. Its located in one of the condos and is open for anyone.
Bathrooms are available at the parking lot.

“We love it!”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

A must see beach at Marco Island! Everyone gathers here for a great Gulf sunset. Parking is across the street for $8.00/day.

“Florida really should be ashamed of this island”
Reviewed 27 June 2014 via mobile

This is a gorgeous island completely lined with high rise condos. You cannot see the ocean from the road anywhere on this island. Not even a peak. Sign after sign telling you to keep out/no parking/private. This particular beach is small, surrounded by condos, and a very long walk across the highway to get to it. Otherwise it is a pretty beach, clean.... but it's very populated.

“Quiet beach”
Reviewed 16 June 2014 via mobile

This beach was not busy at all when we visited twice. I guess it's because Marco Island isn't as popular a destination as other beaches and it's so far out of the way. The beach is clean, sand is white, nice shelling.

“Nice beach with white sand”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

Well we had a great time at this beach with enough depth to swim, white sand (not quite soft on the feet at some places). Bring an umbrella cause the sun is harsh there. We parked on the other side of the street and walked about 600 feet to reach the beach. you won't be able to find many shells since they're all broken. There are no swimguards.
