Laid back vacation spot with lots of local flavor. Good local restaurants and mom & pop shopping. Best beach in FL, clean and well maintained. - Traveler732282, Tripadvisor, 10 May 2021.
The beach does live up to its reputation. Miles of walking. Was a little crowded over the weekend due to spring break but during the week was much more calm and peaceful. Saw many people picking up trash which was nice. Water was good and ample waves for boggy boarding. - Jeff, Tripadvisor, April 2021.
This is a long white sand beach that the gulf is known for. Plenty of open restaurants, bars, and live music to keep everyone happy. Was there at spring break and no craziness, just everyone having a great time. - medsalesguy, Tripadvisor, April 2021.
