Caladesi Island State Park
Picked for its beauty, the beach on Caladesi Island is one of the most stunning stretches of sand on the planet. At this secluded beach the sand seems whiter and the water more teal colored than anywhere else. Shell hunters will appreciate the pickings and nature lovers will find plenty of small critters to watch. It is a nature sanctuary so there are few amenities and is only reachable by boat. While this may be slightly inconvenient, it is a small price to maintain the Island's pristine condition. Boats run from the mainland on a daily schedule, check their website for details and fees.
