It’s a quiet, laid back, residential beach retreat with lots of room to roam or stretch out. I've spent a lot of time here doing just that..relaxing and stretching out! It's also a great beach on which to hunt for sea shells. For some reason, this seems to be the best beach in the area for sea shells on sea shell hunting in a bit. Nokomis beach is also a great beach on which to take a long walk, sunbathe, picnic, or just enjoy a beautiful day on this family-friendly beach, enjoying the sights and sounds of nature and wildlife. Whether it's watching the majestic, prehistoric looking Pelicans dive from the sky into the water for a fresh fish snack, or catching sight of a bottle nosed dolphin taking a leisurely swim past the beach, or chasing the sea gulls around in the sand, you’ll love the wild life all around you on this, one of the Sun Coast's finest Gulf of Mexico beaches.
