How to Choose the Best Gulf Coast Beach for You

Florida Gulf Coast Beaches

The Gulf Coast of Florida is renowned for its beautiful beaches as well as being one of the top vacation destinations in the US. With over 1,200 miles of sandy beaches in the state of Florida, how do you choose the best beach for you? Here are a few simple steps to help you select the perfect spot for your next beach vacation

First ask yourself what you are looking for in a beach? Does your dream beach vacation consist of long days on a secluded beach with small town simplicity or are you looking for a full day of exciting beach activities with lots of restaurants and shopping options? Do you want to stick your toes in powder white sand or search for shells? Would you like palm trees or sand dunes as your backdrop?

The beaches of Pensacola and Perdido Key: Both have soft powder white sand, emerald green waters and beautiful sand dunes. Pensacola Beach offers an exciting array of beach activities, shopping and restaurants galore. Perdido Key is a quiet beach town with not so many options but plenty of privacy and a short drive to Pensacola. 

The beaches of Destin and Seagrove: The white sand will squeak under your feet at these two beaches. Destin has exciting charter fishing trips, cool shops on the harbor, water parks, go-carts and an array of restaurants to choose from. Seagrove is a charming little beach town on 30A with a laid-back feel. Two rare coastal dune lakes and state park invite you to spend most of your time enjoying nature. Casual cafes and small boutiques give you that quaint little beach town feel. 

The beaches of Clearwater and Anna Maria Island: A little further south brings us to the beaches of Clearwater and Anna Maria Island. Both boast white sand and tranquil, crystal clear waters as well as an average of 361 days of sunshine per year. Clearwater is a destination hot spot with a buzzing boardwalk and plenty to do on and off the beach. Anna Maria Island is quiet and romantic. The small town vibe entices you to sit back and relax. With nothing over two stories, you will be taken back to a time when life was simple and stress-free.  

Whether you’re looking for an easygoing, carefree beach vacation or an action packed day at the beach with plenty of options on land, the Florida Gulf Coast has a beach for you! Enjoy your beach day on the Gulf Coast of Florida.
