We've been to most of the beaches in the upper and middle Keys and finally found a great one! Sombrero Beach is maintained by Monroe County, has new restrooms, outdoor freshwater showers, barbecues, and free parking. To the left side of the beach is a small out-cropping that turned out to be a very accessible area of reef with sponges, sea urchins, brightly colored tropical fish and all in shallow water.Watch for small signs for a left turn just after Winn Dixie and just before the Publix market, same road as Marathon High School. Even though we were there on a school day, after school got out the beach was not the least bit crowded and parking was plentiful!
