on the Gulf of Mexico in Sunny SW Florida
When asked where some of Florida’s least crowded beaches might be; enchanting Manasota Key comes to mind!
Swimming, snorkeling, bodyboarding and finding Pre-historic sharks teeth appeal to most frequenting Manasota Beach. Across the street is a dock and boat ramp on the intra-coastal waterway where fishermen cast their lines and skippers head out for a day of pleasure.
Blind Pass Beach is ideal for swimming, shelling, fishing, boating, and hiking. With access to the Intra-coastal Waterway, this park provides docking areas for kayaks/canoes as well as tranquil coves for fishing. The most populated beach is Englewood Beach as the amenities include a playground, basketball hoops, volleyball and more. Seeking even more… natural beauty and solitude?
Stump Pass Beach features direct access to the Gulf and bay via shaded walking trails and boardwalks. Shelling, swimming, birding, snorkeling, and ranger-led turtle walks are the mainstay while watery, grass flats offer exceptional fishing. Canoe/kayakers will enjoy paddling the mangrove bordered inlets of Lemon Bay.
