Florida Beaches Guide – Englewood Beach

Beach 411 ~ Englewood Beach

Gulf Coast (Central), Blind Pass Beach to Stump Pass Beach State Park on Manasota Key

  • Beach type: family-oriented, miles of easy walkable, playable beachfront.
  • Beach geography: 5½ miles (9 km) of flat, walkable beachfront. Soft, granular and powder mixed sand and shells. Well packed shoreline makes for a great surface to stroll. Wide in spans to accommodate lots of public access areas. Busy area for shell and shark-tooth hunting.
  • Ease of access: public beach access areas every mile or so with ample parking.
  • Extra costs: generally $0.75 per hour parking at Englewood lot, but due to covid protocols, no fees as of spring 2022.
  • Beach amenities: ample parking, washrooms at main locations, all areas require you to bring your own chairs as no rentals are available. Some restaurants (Sandbar Tiki Grill and White Elephant Pub as two recommendations) only near Englewood beach access area.
  • Special note: sunsets are spectacular!

unspoiled, uncrowded beaches of Manasota KeyA beach for Sunsets and Sharks Teeth

Known for its unspoiled, uncrowded beaches, families play in the warm, calm waters of the Gulf. Lovers stroll hand-in-hand along the shoreline. Children (and adults) filter for unique shells and prized shark’s teeth. Amazing sunsets are a prize for everyone!

beachfront along Stump Pass State BeachA great stretch of easily walkable beach presents itself from the Blind Pass Beach access south to the pass at Stump Pass State Beach. Hard packed, flat shorelines make walking a breeze and allows the churn of the surf at the water line and the sandy high tide beachfront to reveal colorful shell gems and prized sharks’ teeth for the patient. Manatees and dolphins can be seen from shore to add aquatic wildlife excitement.

vibrant sunsets are a delicious treat!Middling the Gulf coast, this span of beach from Blind Pass to Stump Pass State Beach is prime sea turtle nesting ground. Between April and October, the main sea turtle species - Loggerhead turtles, Green turtles, Leatherback turtles, Kemp’s Ridley turtles and Hawksbill turtle – lay between 80 and 120 eggs each in thousands of nests along the coast. Local networks of volunteers (like the Coastal Wildlife Club in the Englewood area) identify, mark and monitor nesting sites til the hatchlings emerge and begin their seaward journey towards the ocean surf. Conservation and protection is a key necessity in this natural area.

Englewood attractions, events & nightlife

Englewood is a little bit off the radar, hence the scene is quieter and more relaxed. The beaches are unspoiled and uncrowded and the sunset is natural and spectacular. The main activities and events are outdoors, natural and relaxed (except for the parasailing)!

Whether along the shoreline or along the inner bay, you have options:

Englewood Beach weather

Gulf Coast weatherWith a position inside the Gulf of Mexico and leeward to the windy Atlantic, this allows Englewood a tropical band of patterned weather with hot and sometimes wet summers, and warm and dry winters (temps range from 54’F to 89’F). Excitedly and enviously, the inner Gulf Coast boasts more than 2,900 hours of sunshine a year and more than 300 sunny days a year – that’s worthy of beachy celebrations!
