Anne's Beach

Top choice in Upper Keys

Named after local environmentalist Anne Eaton, this tiny beach is one of the finest seascapes in these parts. The small ribbon of sand opens upon a sky-bright stretch of tidal flats and a green tunnel of hammock and wetland. A short (quarter-mile) boardwalk leads through the mangroves with lookouts and picnic tables along the way.

The tiny parking lot is often full. There's additional parking on the bayside, a short walk south of Anne's Beach.
