Hello all, new here so hope this works. Site was recommended by JD. Thanks Jim.
Apollo Beach is the best beach I've ever been to. I go there at least twice a year, going next week in fact. Been going there about 4 years or so now. As everyone knows parking is a big problem. I don't understand why all of parking area 5 is not nude. It's a shame that you have to walk so far. I have met a lot of great people there, locals and out of towner's like myself. Last visit met Jim & Judy, a great couple from Tenn. And last year Bob & Sherri. People are always friendly and easy to get along with. Look forward to meeting new people each trip.
I live in South Carolina and it takes about 8 hours to get to Apollo, but it is well worth the trip. Recommend this beach to anyone who has never been there. If you go once you will love it. Hope the weather is good for my visit next week, I know I will enjoy it.

Jim

I just got back from a seven day trip, six of which were spent at Haulover Beach. But I spent one day at Apollo and it's a wonderful beach. It was on a Monday and there were about 45 of us there and the people all were very nice, with no real gawkers because it is such a long ways to get to parking lot 5 and then the walk to the CO area. Highly recommended!

That's one of the many nice things about Apollo. I've seen very few out & out gawkers there. As you said, probably the limited parking and 100 yard or so trudge through the sand keep them away.

Ampfly, missed you by a day. Spent yesterday morning at Apollo and it was one of my most pleasant visits there yet. Well, except for the horseflies.

Arrived about 9 and had no trouble parking. Great sun and temperature, some surf but not violent. There were about 15 people when I got there and maybe 30 when I left around noon.

It was definitely worth the drive over from Sarasota,where I'm actually staying this week, but I will be sure and remember the bug repellent next time.

The Greenhead flies are terrible at Apollo sometimes. Has anyone found what will keep them away? We have tried everything but nothing works very well. If you have a secret weapon please share it with us.

Diger, stay under water??? :) Some of the time, Deep Woods Off works, other times I think they eat it. Yesterday at our local Target store, they had something with 40% Deet. You might try that.

Hugs, Cheri

Something that a local outdoorsman here recommended.....Listeriene in a spray bottle. I think we may try that in September.

Never heard about the Listerine but will give it a try when I go down next month. Will let you guys know if it works.

Cheri,
We tried the Deet, we used so much we got to feeling sick and as you said, I think they were eating it.

We were told by a local that Vaseline Intensive Care Lotion works, It works for him but didn't work for us.

One thing that we have had limited success with is Suntan oil, It will keep most of them away but any oils will make you much hotter.

If the Listerine works please pass it on to everyone.

JD, I tried the listering here at home. I was out side and the gnats was eating me up. Came in and sprayed a little on my arms and legs, went back out and nothing bothered me. So maybe it will work on the horsefiles. I HOPE SO.

Let us know how it goes. The guy that told me about it uses it when he goes fishing in Canada. He said the skeeters & horse flys there were terrible in the summer.

From their website, "Pets are allowed on the lagoon-side of the park, but must be kept on a leash. Pets are not allowed on the beach."

That's what I suspected as I'd never seen one there. I pretty much stay on the beach.
