I'm planning on going to Siesta Key Beach BUT I also want to go to a much more seculded beach as well as a beach I could find some cool shells. I'm assuming a beach with lots of nice shells wouldn't have the nicest sand so this might have to be a different beach from the seculded and relaxing one I'm looking for as well.
I won't be taking a boat out so it needs to be accessible by car (or car and a reasonable walk). I see so many beaches listed in the area (like Anna Maria Bay Beach, Bradenton/Cortez Beach, Greer Island Beach, Long Boat Key Beach, Turtle Beach, and Palmer Point beach just to name a few) but just don't know which would be best for the two things I'm looking for and there isn't a ton of information/photos about each on any of the sites that mention them. I've gotton some great help from the New Yorkers who know the area so hopefully you'll have some experience here as well. As long as it's above Ospry,FL and below Palm Harbor,FL I'm interested.
