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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
