Fodor's Review

If you want to find the most pristine beach possible without heading to some remote outpost, this is your best bet. Shuttles to this seemingly remote paradise run out of Pass-A-Grille and Dolphin Landings. You can catch them in the morning and early afternoon most days. If you do, expect some amazing snorkeling, shelling, and bird-watching. (You can also kayak or canoe here from a launch near Fort DeSoto.) Rustic overnight camping is allowed here in the part of the island not designated as a bird sanctuary. Watch for rip currents when swimming, as they can be pretty strong. Amenities: none. Best for: solitude; swimming; walking.
