St. Pete Beach is filled with shopping, evening entertainment and every type of water sport. The city’s founding fathers purchased the Treasure Island beach outside its city limits to ensure that residents would have direct access to the Gulf of Mexico for years to come. 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

fort desotoFt. DeSoto Beach – a beach that has been ranked number one in the United States, Fort De Soto Park boasts 900 pristine acres and seven miles of sandy beaches. 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.

SHELL KEY

Many boats from St. Pete Beach and John’s Pass offer sightseeing rides that take guests to Shell Key for sunbathing and dolphin watching near the island. 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
