Causeway parking lot
The causeway parking is a public or C permit lot. This means unless you have a C permit (few do) you must pay the $2.00 an hour rate. It has about 22 spots plus 2 handicap and I don't think I have ever seen it filled up. If you decide to park here be prepared to walk. It is about 250-300 yards down the pathway to get to the beach. If you don't mind the walk the fishing can be fantastic here. Under the causeway you can pretty much name the species of fish you want. There is a nice small stretch of beach and it is the only lot (other then the Lighthouse at the tip of the island and Blind Pass at the other tip) that allows general public parking access to the bay. If you check out the Bailey Road beach access review it pretty much applies to here as they are almost right next to each other. Without the walk that is!
A large parking lot with plenty of spots
This shows the walk along the path to get to the beach. It is a good distance if lugging along beach chairs and fishing poles!
