Love this beach and its white sugar sand. Super clean beach with life guards on duty. Occasionally can be a bit crowded. No alcohol allowed on this beach.

Not yet. It is south of Clearwater by quite a distance...say 50+ miles. As a resident I pray it doesn't reach this area. I have been keeping updated with this. As much as we rely on tourism here I would recommend keeping... More
