Located at the southern end of St. Pete, the Pinellas County park is a favorite of tourists and locals alike. Made of 5 beautiful islands, with more than 1,100 acres and 6 miles of pristine, white beaches, this is a must-see when touring in Florida!
Natural beauty awaits you and your date, family, or friends if you charter a boat to Fort Se Soto Park in Pinellas County. Known as one of the most ecologically diverse parks, it weaves a majestic tapestry of sea life, wildlife, birdlife, and history, waiting to be explored!
It was once a military outpost and is spread over 5 interconnected islands. It spans more than 1,130 acres, so it is perfect for many adventures, including swimming, island hopping, biking, and even camping. Take a charter boat rental to Fort De Soto and you’ll see why it has been voted as the nation’s best beach destination.
If boating and fishing are your favorite activities, there is a boat ramp with ample floating docks and fishing piers in this park. If exploring the seven miles of waterfront and beaches is not enough to keep you occupied, a plethora of kayaks and canoes are available for rent in the outpost.
Furry friends are welcome to splash and play in this area too! This park is one of the few that allows animals on the beach, but they have designated areas. They have watering stations to keep your pooch well hydrated. The main beaches have restrooms, picnic shelters, parking, and plenty of shorelines! Is swimming not your thing? Do you want to try something more extreme? Why not trek through the flatwoods or lowlands and spot gopher tortoises on the way?
No trip to Fort De Soto is complete without the much-hyped visual encounters with the island waters' mainstays...the dolphins, egrets, manatees, and sea turtles. This is the perfect adventure for families with kids!
