2100 N. Beach Road
941-681-3742 (for reservations)
This is where the action is. Families, high
school students, retirees, locals and visitors
flock to this beach and the surrounding
restaurants and shops. There is plenty
to do besides worship the sun, including
horseshoes, volleyball, basketball and a
playground. Beach yoga and a sunset drum
circle are open to all and can attract more
than 100 people in season. With not a high
rise or condo complex in sight, this bustling
beach retains its charm and is especially
popular at sunset.
Insider Tip: There is a parking fee here and
payment is enforced.
STUMP PASS BEACH STATE PARK
South end of Manasota Key
900 Gulf Blvd, Englewood
If you prefer peace and quiet to hustle and
bustle, this is the beach for you, but get there
early as there are only 40 parking spaces ($3
vehicle fee) at this mile-long beach tucked
in between Lemon Bay and the Gulf of
Mexico. There are nature trails where you
might see gopher tortoises and shore birds.
Oh, and unlike other area beaches, this park
has specific hours: 8 a.m. to sunset.
Insider Tip: This is a great place to find sharks’
teeth on the beach.
