But, you don’t have to follow the tourists. Instead, you can vacation like the locals by going to a beach off the beaten path. Take a look at some of these Florida beaches you can enjoy without feeling cramped:
Pass a-Grille Beach, St. Pete Beach: This laid back island has a simplistic and easy-going feel. You can enjoy all the amenities of the busier beaches – minus the crowd. Whether you’re with a significant other or a big family, you’ll get to enjoy the gorgeous sunrise and translucent water.
Beaches at Caladesi Island State Park: If you want a secluded beach, Caladesi Island is the place to be. You can only reach this place by boat and it’s less than an hour from Tampa. There’s plenty to do from kayaking to nature walks. Overall, it’s a peaceful beach with beautiful emerald water that’ll make your Instagram feed pop.
Beaches of Bahia Honda State Park: This is actually 3 beaches bundled together on 500 acres of tropical heaven. You have the choice of renting a rustic bungalow, or book a campsite. This place is the ideal location for off-the-grid living for a few days.
