Fodor's Review

A 14-acre beach-park that's popular with families, Turtle has 2,600 linear feet of beach frontage and is more secluded than most gulf beaches. Though narrower than most of the region's beaches, it's also much less crowded, so it doesn't feel so narrow. It's known for abundant sea turtles. It has covered picnic shelters, grills, and a volleyball court. Locals like the 40-site campground that is also open to visitors with advance reservations. Fittingly enough, this beach is near the uber-mellow Turtle Beach Resort. Amenities: toilets. Best for: solitude; sunset; swimming; walking.
