Ah, the beach. Sandy shores, waves, and sun. The beach is a place to watch the ocean come and go, hear the waves quiet rushing, feel the sand between your toes and smell the salty wind.
And that’s why we recommend Coco Plum Beach.
In the Keys, sand is not a common find. Most beaches available in Marathon, and the Keys in general, are small and not suitable for long walks. Most of the islands there are composed of solid coral rock, so this natural beach is a lovely and rare exception.
Coco Plum Beach is a perfect place to take a long walk, read a book, or even search for shells.
You can also wind surf, relax under one of the shaded tiki huts or simply soak up some sun. The beach extends over a mile past the public entrance and eventually stops at a little inlet next to the private property line. The distance allows for a great place to bring your dog to run alongside you, and since they are a dog-friendly beach, they even provide clean-up baggies for your convenience.
If you look out to Hawk Channel on your long walk, you can see a gorgeous view of water color variations that are especially enhanced when the tide is out.
