At Stump Pass Beach State Park, enjoy a stretch of untouched Florida coastline along the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico. The clear water is ideal for snorkeling, swimming, and kayaking, and the sandy beaches invite visitors to take in some rays or collect shells. Follow the 2 km (1.3 mi) hiking trail leading through five different natural habitats, where you'll see plants such as prickly pear cacti and bay cedars. Keep an eye out for dolphins, ospreys, gopher tortoises, snowy egrets, and even manatees. The park can be reached by boat or car; if you choose the latter arrive early, as the small parking lot can fill up fast.

Stump Pass Beach State Park reviews
Wonderful walking trail through nature. Clearly marked, some parts just pure beach to walk on. Lots of places to sit and rest. Beautiful views of Lemon Bay and The Gulf only a few hundred yards apart at points. Many parts of the walk protected from sun and wind. About 2 miles to go from the parking lot to the end and back. Parking is $3 per car to State Park Ranger (Dropbox - bring exact change). Go early as it fills up quickly. You can wait for people to leave (fairly brisk turnover).
Beautiful untouched beach and back bay to walk and enjoy. Moderate shelling on the beach side, only downside is the lack of restroom facilities when you are taking a long walk. Otherwise its a beautiful place to take a stroll or park yourself for some r and r for the day. Bring cash to pay by envelope at the entrance.
