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.”
