Fort Island Trail Beach, the only public beach on the Gulf of Mexico in Citrus County, is a small sandy beach located at the end of the scenic Fort Island Trail road in Crystal River. It is listed as a birding location in the Great Florida Birding Trail network. In addition to being a great place to see beautiful sunsets, it is also a terrific place to observe a wide variety of shore birds including gulls, terns, skimmers, sandpipers, plovers, and more.
