Fort Island Gulf Beach Fishing Pier
8 locals recommend ·
Tips from locals
Pack a lunch and spend the day on the beach, fishing off the pier, or walking the trails.
Located on the Gulf of Mexico. This is the closest sand beach to Little Ridge Ranch. It is about an hour away.
Good for launching a deeper hull boat to get into the Gulf straight away. Close proximity to a sandy beach.
14 mi—just turn right off of Woodward and drive until you get there. GREAT SUNSET VIEWS—take food or drinks and enjoy! Picnic tables, bathrooms, boardwalk, fishing pier, shallow boat ramp.

“If you want a big meal at 5:30 AM, go to Grannies. The menu is open all day but the day ends at 3:00 in the afternoon. You will love the portions and the friendly staff. This is my go to spot before I fish, scallop, or kayak/paddle board the Crystal River area. There is plenty of parking across the street for your boat trailer. I've been a customer at Grannie's for 17 years.”
