Fort De Soto State Park, Florida

My favorite Florida beach is Fort Desoto State Park, Florida located in Tierra Verda,

Florida right near St. Petersburg, Florida. Right from the time you cross the beautiful harbor bridge to access this beach and dip your toes into the crystal clear water of the Gulf of Mexico, you'll know this is one of the most glorious beaches you'll ever visit.

The sand is a powdery white and the ocean a stunning, brilliant blue! The palm trees provide great spots to retreat for shade from the fierce sun. There's lots of spots for picnics, so be sure to bring one! There's also a small concession stand where you can purchase ice cream and drinks. There are public restroom facilities which are well maintained.

The beach has a lagoon area with a small tidal pool area that the kids really love. You can wade over to the ocean side of the beach if you wish to be along the oceanfront. It's not unusual to find dolphins swimming in the tidal pool area, scouting for small fish for dinner!


If you love collecting shells, this is the perfect beach for you! The shells are plentiful and during certain times of the year the sand dollars wash up by the handfuls! The beautiful coastline is perfect for long walks for those who enjoy a leisurely stroll on the beach.


So the next time you are looking for a place that has something for the entire family, check out Fort De Soto State Park Beach and experience a bit of heaven on earth!!
