There really is a lot to like about Sombrero Beach. It's got a good location, shade trees, a kids' play area and a beach house with bathrooms and a shower.

Unfortunately, there was waaaaaaay too few parking spots and waaaaay too much seaweed in the water and because a lot of it washed up on the shore, there was a bad smell to the place. It was so strong, we only stayed for a short while before leaving to find a better beach.

I recommend driving across Seven Mile Bridge to the Bohia Honda State Park. There's a fee to get in, but the beach is exponentially better.

One of the best beaches in the Florida Keys. There is plenty of parking, bathrooms, pavilions for a picnic, a playground for the kids and warm salty water!

Stopped in for a little beach break and sunset. Nice water and sand. Chilly wind in early March. Not busy at all, just a few folks here and there. Peaceful ending to a day of Keys pub crawling and sightseeing.

Tons of sea grass coming in this time of year so if you’re going to swim, you better like swimming in slime. Beyond that the beach is nice and the view is pretty good.

This little beach is tucked away off the beaten path and was amazing. We snorkeled, met some friendly locals and tourists and had a lovely evening. Stop by , you won't be disappointed!

Not much parking but this seems to keep the beach crowd manageable. This is a well maintained park with bathrooms, shelters picnic tables, volleyball nets and swimming. The water color is nice and there are not many waves.

I guess I have a higher standard coming from California, but we planned to spend the day here and it was crowded, smelly, and depressing. We went back to the beach at the hotel instead.
