Turtle Nesting on Sombrero Beach
From April through October, Sombrero Beach is a designated turtle nesting beach. The Loggerhead turtles come onto Sombrero Beach at night to lay their eggs in the sand.  During these months, you will not see any tables or park benches on the beach to avoid disturbing the turtle nesting.

A sandy bottom beach and shallow waters makes Sombrero Beach a great snorkeling beach with its clear blue waters.  Sombrero Beach allows pets.  There are no concessions or camping.

Coco Plum Beach

If you’re looking for a more relaxing, quieter beach, stop by Coco Plum Beach It is smaller than Sombrero Beach with a pavilion and restroom facility.  This beach is also a turtle nesting beach so there may be some restricted areas around the turtle nests.

Coco Plum Beach is located on Coco Plum Drive.  In Marathon, on US 1 or Overseas Highway, go South on Coco Plum Drive at Mile Marker 54.5 (ocean side) and drive about 1.4 miles to reach the beach.
