Blind Pass Beach

“A Taste of Old Florida”

On Manasota Key

Plenty of Free Parking for this uncrowded Beach!

Often referred to as Middle Beach, this expansive spit of sand is ideal for swimming, shelling, fishing, boating, and hiking. Hidden away, this beach… with no lifeguards… offers plenty of privacy and opportunity to commune with nature. Artists, fishermen and anyone looking for peace, quiet and perhaps a muse flock here to take in all the serene sights and sounds. Featuring 60 acres gulf to the bay with 2,900 feet of gulf beach frontage Blind Pass has plenty of free parking, wheelchair access, picnic tables, showers, and restrooms. 

Behind the parking lot, travel a dusty road to the play yard and picnic pavilion as well as the Intra-coastal Waterway featuring docking areas for small boats, kayaks, and canoes. An abundance of tranquil coves attract many a fisherman and if the fish aren’t biting in Lemon Bay, just… cross the road and try the Gulf. 

Looking for a place to stay? 

The vacation rentals on Manasota Key vary from rental homes and condominiums to apartment efficiencies and motel rooms. The atmosphere is that of old Florida with several good restaurants and souvenir shops or there’s downtown Englewood just a bridge away. Manasota Key is not as populated nor as well-known as other places in Southwest Florida. The advantages of this little isle are tranquil relaxation and affordability.
