Key Largo’s TINY TINY Beach!

7175529710_c83ff179ae_bThe sign reads: “Pets Are Not Allowed On Beach”… they should also add “Neither Are A Lot Of People!” 🙂 Welcome to one of the Florida Key’s Smallest Beaches! Though not the smallest, that title so far belongs to one in Key West nicknamed ‘Dog Beach’.

Located at the end of a dead-end road (shown here), this beach is indeed tiny! Talk about disparity, the roped off swimming area this side of the paddling canoes is large enough for a thousand patrons while the sandy beach portion can accommodate a mere ten neatly laid out beach towels! *Beach estimates based on three double-blind taste tests conducted by the prestigious institute of UUG (University Of Useless Guesses). 🙂

In all fairness, this is only one of the beaches here, the larger one is about a mile away and is always packed with people holding thousands of sun-worshipers and picnickers with no problems. If solitude is on your list while soaking up sun rays then this beach is for you!

Though your beach visit itself is FREE, the park does charge an entrance fee per car’s occupants… if I recall, maybe the $3 to $4 range. The park is so well worth the price, bring a picnic and make a day of it, there’s that much here to do!

You can find one of the Florida Key’s Smallest Beaches along with dozens of day-long activities at John Pennekamp State Park on US-1 at Mile Marker 102.3 oceanside.
