Hike, bike, or Rollerblade to Ft. DeSoto Park, recently named America's Top Beach by Trip Advisor. One look at the soft, white sand; calm, clear water; and laid-back atmosphere, and you'll see why it consistently earns top honors in the travel community.

A beach a day… You might have a tough time deciding which beach is your favorite. You can choose from the private beach at Collany Key in front of the residences. Nearby Shell Island hosts six miles of a beautiful beach. Ft. DeSoto Park, within two miles, is only a short walk, ride or Rollerblade trip away. And St. Pete Beach stretches seven miles from Pass-a-Grille to Blind Pass.
