Explore our Beaches
The Pearl Beach Inn is located on the quiet North side of Manasota Key an island with miles of pristine white sandy beaches. Every May to October, you'll see the sea turtles come to nest on our shores, and year-round you can spend hours searching for the fossilized teeth of multiple shark species. Some guests have even found fossilized teeth of Megalodon who lived millions of years ago!
Stump Pass State Park
At the very Southern tip of the island, Stump Pass is a public beach where boaters anchor and swimmers play in the serene crystal turquoise waters.
Englewood Beach / Chadwick Park
At the base of Beach Road (land bridge at the South of the Island), this public beach attracts beachgoers of all ages. Lifeguards and a playground make it especially popular with families. Sunbathers can easily pop over from the beach to fantastic eateries and shoppes just across the street.
Heading North from Englewood beach, visitors to the island will be awestruck as they round the bend of Manasota Key Road and see Blind Pass beach. The turquoise waters are so close and breathtaking. Parking for the beach is across the road, and there are facilities but no lifeguards.
At the North end of the island (base of the Manasota Beach Road land bridge) is Manasota Beach. With public facilities, and a quick walk over the bridge, this beach is popular with the locals in the area.
