The beach has full shower facilities, a snack bar, volleyball courts, and a beach wheelchair for handicapped visitors. The beaches around this area are so clean that they have won awards from the Clean Beaches Council for the second year in a row.

FT. DESOTO BEACH

A total of five islands, the park features a fort built during the Spanish-American War on the biggest of the islands called Mullet Key. Fort DeSoto, named after a Spanish explorer, was built in 1898 in an effort to protect Tampa Bay during the war. The fort also was occupied during World War I and during World War II for a short time. The fort never fired on an enemy. In the late 1940s, the fort was sold to Pinellas County but the park wasn’t dedicated until May 11, 1963. Two piers for fishing, camping areas, bathrooms and covered picnic areas are available. Fort De Soto Park also offers rental facilities for canoes, kayaks and bicycles as well as a biking and skating trail. There are many luxury homes and condominiums within a short bike ride or drive to Ft. DeSoto.

Visiting Shell Key should be on your list of things to do. It’s also considered one of the five most important areas in the State for migrating and nesting endangered sea and shore birds.

EGMONT KEY
