“Englewood Beach and Manasota Key offer 5 beaches with different attributes to each. Making them fitted for what ever type of experience you wish to have. Stump Pass offers a view of the bay waters on one side and beach on the other side of the piece of land which lies between . Englewood Beach has 2 parking lots with a boardwalk extending from lots to the beaches and a volleyball and playground area with pavilions that may be reserved for special occasions. Across the street is stores and restaurants with bars and music. Middle Beach has a parking lot across the road from beach with no parking fees, and a playground behind the lot as well as a walking path on the lot side and a small fishing dock on the lot side. Its a little further down the road so no stores but a quieter beach for the potential fisherman. Then the last beach Manasota Key Beach has a lifeguard on duty. All beaches have bathroom facilities available.”

Natural Feature
“Blind Pass is up a bit from from Englewood beach on Manasota Key. This beach has free parking across the road from the beach and a playground was in the back of the parking lot. As well on parking side there is a small dock for a little fishing or a walk path under the canopy with a few rest benches along the way to escape the sun and enjoy a little exercise. No stores just restrooms and a nice beach. Occasionally some fisherman wet their lines in the gulf waters.”
