      Sand Key Beach
      Anna Maria Island

      Sand Key is right near Clearwater Beach, but is much less populated than Clearwater. You get the best of both worlds: the fun atmosphere and shopping areas of Clearwater Beach in walking distance from Sand Key, but also the relaxing, private beach area as well. smile

      Anna Maria Island is beautiful and somewhat undiscovered. It stretches out so far that it leaves lots of room for you to spread out and give you that private beach feeling.

        yes, I think so, numerous Gulf Beaches always top Best Beaches list. The sand is so white and soft, the water is much more clear.
        The sunsets are amazing.

    I've been all over Florida and prefer Naples and Bonita Beach. The sunsets are beautiful and white sugar sand accelerates tanning. I've seen dolphins perform on Bonita Beach. The popular public beaches offer showers and restrooms. Some offer concessions. A few have playgrounds and boat rental.
    For some hip entertainment on the beach, try Ft. Myers Beach. You can catch a trolley from Bonita. Take any little ones to Tigertail Beach on Beautiful Marco Island. Naples is a beautiful town; Think of the beauty of some of Miami. Naples is expensive between Halloween and Easter, but then the prices for motels and such drop in half. I don't think the Florida summer heat and sun will bother you.

    Anna Maria Island - clear turquoise water, white powder sand

    St. Joe Beach - clear water, white sand, no undertow, no crowds

    Amelia Island - great fishing and atmosphere

    Cocoa Beach is great for family vacation.  The water's great and there's shopping closeby.

    I've liked South Beach only because of the combination of night life on the shore was so great. There's so many great beaches in Florida, it would be hard for me to pic just one.

    Panama City Beach and the jetties are a great place to snorkel. I loved going there when I lived in the south.

    my very favorite is Caladesi Island off the Dunedin causeway.

    other favorites are all on the Gulf coast;
    Honeymoon Island- off the same Dunedin causeway, gorgeous
    Sand Key Beach- beautiful white sands, secluded
    Passe a Grille- great beach community with amazing sunsets
    Indian Rock Beach- amazing sunsets
    Clearwater Beach is full of fun, white powder sand and clear water.
    Siesta Key- fun, beautiful, tropical

    snorkeling in the Keys is an amazing experience. don't forget sunscreen!

    Probably Destin up in the panhandle, because it's the clearest water in all of Florida!  You can stand in chest deep water and see your toes, you can't do that anywhere else...

    Well, there was this one girl when I was in college who...oh, you said "beach." Sorry.

    My favorite beach in Florida is proabably Fort De Soto Park, near St. Petersburg, because it's not as well known and it's also been voted the number one beach before by Dr. Beach...

    Hey Guys, I have visited so many beaches in Florida. But I love Daytona Beach. What is your opinion on this. I think Daytona Beach is the lovely beach in Florida.

    Sanibel/Captiva island. The "one way in and out" causeway keeps a lot of tourists from making the trip, because traffic can be bad. These islands have not allowed as much condo construction, and are more a throw-back to a kinder, gentler day.

    Depends on what'cha like to do.

    I lifeguarded 3 yrs on Ft.Laud Bch.

    Loaded with ladies and night life and the beach is 4 miles of sand and palm trees.

    The diving is great from one end of the beach to the other.

    Fishin' is great offshore and it's only 190 miles to Key West.

    Bookoo beaches all the way down the Keys.

    Ya can catch a cruise ship outa Port Everglades and cruise the Bahamas.

    Bimini and Nassau are fun and the beaches are fantastic.

    Surfin' is good just a few miles N in the Boca Raton area

    I'll stick with Ft. Lauderdale.
