Fodor's Review

This wide, virtually untouched expanse—about 166 acres—of open beach makes visitors feel transported from the bustling high-rises and resorts just a few blocks south. A full roster of eco-inclined features, like a designated fishing zone, hard-bottom reef (one of the few in the region and close enough to swim up to), boat dock, and observation tower hooks anglers, nature lovers, and water-sports enthusiasts drawn to the peaceful, laid-back vibe. Moms and dads love the educational displays on the local environment and the ranger-led sea turtle and birding programs, not to mention the picnic tables, grills, and plenty of shade offshore. A new concession stand was added in 2013, making food, drinks, and beach gear easily accessible to those less inclined to self-catering. Amenities: food and drink; parking (fee); showers; toilets; water sports. Best for: solitude; snorkeling; walking.
