Sombrero Beach in Marathon
Sombrero Beach in Marathon is on the Atlantic Ocean and is one of the nicest beaches in the Middle Keys. To get to Sombrero Beach, from US 1 turn toward the Atlantic side at Publix and Winn-Dixie and follow Sombrero Beach road past the high school to the ocean.
Sombrero Beach is family friendly with a large park area and picnic shelters. There is a large area for beach volleyball and lots of free parking, so this is definitely the place to spend an afternoon. We see lots of people with picnic lunches from the nearby grocery stores enjoying a day at the beach.
If you are in the Middle Keys and want to enjoy the ocean, we highly recommend visiting Sombrero Beach in Marathon. Sombrero is a very clean and well maintained beach park, and even when it is busy there is still plenty of room to spread out and enjoy the day.
