    to be more clear - yes I know I can see it by boat. but can I anchor close enough to wade in? are there spots to even "beach" the boat apart from the swimming area?

    There is no public area where you can beach the boat.

    Some people drop anchor in Sister Creek or drop off people at the sw corner of the beach. It can get very shallow during outgoing tide some people beach zodiacs etc for short periods of time but as said there is no official public area

    thanks guys. just thinking of trips to take with the kids where I could even drop them off and then go to the reef fishing while they swim/play

    There's a beach 50 yards from Bahia Honda State Park marina and a gift shop with food, drinks, ice cream. Are they old enough to give a 20 and let 'em loose?

    All the way to the East end of the beach, outside the swimming area is a small spot to beach no one has ever said I could not beach there
    good luck

    I think I have seen that area from land
    Is it all sandy or are there small rock piles to dodge.
    Could I get my 266 World Cat up there to drop off kids

    What about curry hammock/ Valhalla sandbar? Easy to get to and plenty of beach.
