Three Best Beaches Near Tampa For Relaxing In Nature

You’ll find a dozen of the world’s most beautiful beaches within a half hour’s drive of Downtown Tampa. If you want a full-service beach with cabanas and plenty of activities like water sports and restaurants, Clearwater Beach is probably the best beach around. Clearwater was actually voted “Best Beach Town in Florida” in a USA Today poll. Now, if you’re looking for a quiet, relaxing beach to get in touch with nature, the Tampa area has beaches for you too!

Caladesi Island

If you’re for a pristine beach with seclusion in mind, look no further than the beach on Caladesi Island. The sand is breathtakingly white and the water crystal teal. This beach is the perfect spot for collecting sea shells and watching wildlife. This beach is inside of a nature sanctuary, so you won’t find the modern conveniences, but if you live near Tampa, this slice of natural Heaven is just a boat ride away.

Indian Rocks Beach

Indian Rocks Beach isn’t as secluded as the beach on Caladesi Island, but there are a few more amenities like showers and access by cars. It’s incredibly laid-back and much less crowded than the more commercialized beaches. This beach is perfect if you want to fully enjoy the natural beauty, but also pick up a lesson or two.

Fort De Soto Park

Fort De Sota Park is the perfect camping beach with over 1,000 acres of land between the connected islands. You’ll find wildlife in the mangroves and wetlands. Plus share the calm lagoon with beautiful species of birds and fish. Rent a kayak to spot even more wildlife or just relax on the calm beach and soak up the sun.
