I lucked out. Comfortable, foggy, enchanting mornings on the beaches (with plenty of shells), then warm if not hot sunny afternoons. Gorgeous place with lots to do. North Beach is amazing.

A very large park; great for cycling with two long fishing piers out into the gulf/bay. Don't miss the historic fort including a photo gallery of what it looked like in the past. A great place to relax, enjoy a quiet beach or fish

A trip to Fort De Soto Park is a gem for spending the day. Clean with a wide range of beach activity which includes boating, hiking, biking, swimming, birding, fishin, etc. The $5 parking fee is a great value for this beautiful Pinellas County Park....More

Beaches are very nice with great shells bathrooms are very clean. The kayaking is a lot of fun would recommend doing more than an hour. We saw a manatee right next to our kayak and a dolphin a few yards away.

It'd been years since we visited and we were all pleased to see that this beautiful park and its beaches were just as lovely as we remember. It's so nice to be away from all of the condos and enjoy the beach surrounded by nature.

The air temperature will be fine but the water temp will be too cold to swim for children and only good for a quick dip for adults -if you like cold water !

Thank you for your question. I don't know if people still crab and clam there. I haven't seen anyone do that in decades.
