Not a popular kiting beach due to the small range for wind directions and a small beach with various obstacles. It is a nice manmade beach that can get crowded on the weekends and holidays. It is best to edge out near the little island with a house and windmill. There are some good spots out here for riding the flats.
Wind directions: SW to SSE.
Sombrero Beach is a gourgous park and beach. The City redeveloped Sombrero Beach in 2001 to include total handicap accessibility. A sandy beach on the Atlantic Ocean holds a shady park with picnic pavilions, volleyball courts, restrooms and showers.
Sombrero Beach is a turtle nesting beach from April through October. Often Loggerhead Turtles (primarily) will come to the beach at night to lay their eggs. During this period the tables and benches are removed from the beach so they do not interfere with turtle nesting activities.
Booties or foot protection are not necessary but recommended for beginners due to some sharp rocks and scattered longspinned urchins. Use caution in this are beacause this is not a very good launch area. There is a large rocky area near a busy traffic way for boats leaving the canals at the end of beach. There area many obstacles such as trees and people in the launch area.
