The Gulf Coast of Florida's warm waters and beautiful beaches attract spring breakers, snowbirds, and families from all over. With popular beaches spanning the entire coastline of the Gulf of Mexico, there are lovely beaches worth checking out, whether you're close to the state's panhandle or further south near the Everglades.

1. Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park - North Naples

This 199-acre state park just north of Naples is home to unspoiled, gorgeous beaches and an array of other outdoor activities. With a wide variety of plant and animal life, Delnor-Wiggins is a great destination for wildlife and plant enthusiasts, as well as watersport fans. Its clear blue waters are not only great to look at but perfect for swimming, snorkeling, and fishing. A plus: visitors can feel secure while relaxing in the waves knowing that lifeguards are on duty. Active beach goers can rent kayaks or take a boat at using one of the park's boat launch. If you plan to stay on land, make sure to lookout for the beautiful shells that the tide carries to shore.


3. Clam Pass County Park - Naples

Situated in North Naples is Clam Pass, a park that sprawls across 35 acres of mangrove forest and coastal dunes still inhabited by the smaller species of Florida wildlife. The beach is over half a mile long with shallow water and gentle waves, making it a great beach to enjoy with children. A beach concession offers food, drinks and beach equipment rentals, including kayaks, canoes, windsurfers and catamarans. A handicapped beach wheelchair can also be rented at the concession stand, for those in need. The park's free tram, which runs all day, makes getting from one end of the park to another easy. For those that arrive via car, parking is $8, though the beach itself does not charge admission.


9. Alison Hagerup Beach Park - Captiva Island

 

Formerly called Captiva Beach, Alison Hagerup Beach is known as one of the most romantic beaches in the state. Its location at the northern most part of Captiva Island makes it one of the most picturesque places to watch the sunset. Conveniently, its parking lot is open to visitors from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and costs $2.00 per hour, making it a great beach to visit any time day to night. Those looking for some extra fun in the sun should head over to YOLO Watersports to rent waverunners or arrange for parasailing. Nature lovers of all ages must check out Sanibel's “Ding” Darling, a 6,354-acre wildlife refuge with hundreds of species of birds, mammals, and reptiles. Come meal time, head to Sanibel's Lazy Flamingo for some seriously hot, hot wings and Florida bar food or visit Captiva's quirky The Bubble Room, a one-of-a-kind restaurant whose fabulous desserts will keep you coming back for more.
