About Sombrero Beach, Marathon

This beautiful beach is host to another guest–the sea turtle. This is basically their nesting ground, and though they take up very little of the beach’s total space, the City makes sure that human activity does not disrupt their activities. That said, walking the beach early in the morning is one of the favourite activities for all those who visit here. The beach, which is small, is also very calm – it’s likely one of the most peaceful places you’ll find here. Just in front of the beach you’ll find a small and grassy park, and a clean public washroom. There’s also a playground and a kayak launching area. Parking is not a problem.

  • I consider this one of those hidden gems, and to the point that it's actually tempting to not tell anyone about it. Sombrero Beach is beautiful white sand and it's so much more chill than almost any beach in South Florida. The parking is free, the wind is plentiful, the waves are beautiful, and there are playgrounds and places for absolutely everyone to find something to love. Half of the beach is closed at the moment because of Hurricane Irma, but they're building it back up fast, and even half of Sombrero Beach is more than worth a day's stop.

  • My wife and I along with our dog spent an evening, one full day and then the following morning here. The dates we visited the beach were 02/11/18 to 02/13/18. This was our first time driving to the Keys, so we cannot compare what is was like before the hurricane. The beach was overall clean with lots of space for people, though seaweed would tend to pile up from high tide. In the water there were pieces of rock/coral from the size of golf balls to soccer balls, but they were only here and there. There was some seaweed on the bottom as well, but it was easy enough to move to a different spot. Our dog LOVED it there, though he is not a water dog. We had him on a 20 ft. leash but kept a close eye on him. Others who had dogs kept a close eye on their dogs and we respectful in cleaning up. The bathrooms and showers were not the cleanest, but far better than at a lot of beaches I have been to. About half of the beach was closed still from the hurricane, but the parts that were open were greatly appreciated!

  • Possibly my favourite beach of 3 we visited on the keys (Bahia Honda,Fort Zachary Taylor the others-also stunning). It's got perfect soft white sand,calm waters and a choice of 2 bays to swim in. Really pretty too.

  • However it is the only public beach in the island of Marathon Key. It is a very nice beach with beautiful sunsets. Places to throw up a hammock for the day, outdoor showers to rinse after swimming in the ocean. Nice clean beach, safe to swim, plenty wildlife. Good place to party or picnic. All around is a pretty decent place to spend time with friends or family. Or solo.

  • Will be nice once construction is finished. I was here on December 1st, 2017. Only a small section was open. While we were there a group of people came and they had a wedding all within like 30 minutes. They took pics and popped champagne. Found lots of cool shells and bits of coral here. Also found some wild hermit crabs. Many different sizes. One the size of a dime and one the size of a tennis ball. Definitely worth going to if you're in Marathon.
