Calusa Beach, Big Pine Key

3.8
#12 of 15 in Beaches in Florida Keys
Bring your whole family to Calusa Beach, as it's child-friendly with shallow and calm waters, restroom and shower facilities, and concessions. Albeit not very big, this beach is known for its beauty, so come early to get a spot at one of five picnic table shelters. Then spend your time snorkeling, wading, and swimming. Don't worry about parking, as there are abundant parking lots nearby. Get food, refreshment, and souvenirs at the stalls on the beach itself.

  • Very nice bay with cool views of the old, dilapidated bridge. The best thing was that in the small harbour here we have a manatee/manatee very close for a very long time, right on the Quai. A great experience.
