The Orlando crowds were wearing me out. This day trip was such a great getaway for a day. I was worried we'd get bored having so many hours at the beach as we did not do any of the activities but we had no trouble using them up. Our driver was very professional and courteous, and the motorcoach was right on time and had comfortable seating and was nice and cool. We got to listen to a light rock/pop station on the way and back. When we got to the beach, driver instructions to everyone were very clear on when and where to meet back up. He dropped us off at the restaurant, so we could see where it was. By the way, it says a picnic lunch is included on some of the descriptions, but it is actually a voucher to go to a restaurant across the street from the beach. They have a shortened version of the menu with sandwiches, burgers, salads, pastas, etc that you can choose from. There are several souvenir shops near the restaurant if you are looking for shirts, postcards, or other souvenirs. This is not the best shelling beach, but the sand is so white and soft. We enjoyed walking down Pier 60 and taking pics of the pelicans. There is a marina across the street from the beach that is interesting to walk along as in the afternoon you can watch some of the fishermen cutting up their catches as the pelicans crowd around wanting some scraps. There is also a store and playground next to Pier 60 where kids can play and you can get a drink and other souvenirs and convenience type items. So glad we did the day trip. It was worth every penny.
