Floridas Hidden Gem Beach: FORT DE SOTO PARK

3500 Pinellas Bayway S, Tierra Verde, FL 33715

Fort De Soto Beach

South-southwest of St. Petersburg, Florida, Fort De Soto Park is a park operated by Pinellas County on five offshore keys, or islands: Madelaine Key, St. Jean Key, St. Christopher Key, Bonne Fortune Key and the main island, Mullet Key. The keys are connected by either bridge or causeway. THIS PLACE IS SO BEAUTIFUL!

Our most recent trip was wonderful! The water was calm, the sun was shining, and all the animals were out to play! From Dolphins to Manatees…Birds and Crabs, our adventure here was a success!

The Boys went fishing on the Pier while the girls went for a swim. They caught a lot of fish and even played around with a Dolphin. (The dolphin kept begging for the fish they caught!)

The park is kid and dog friendly, with a separate beach just for the pups! Along with that they have a few fenced in areas for the dogs as well.

You cant forget that Fort De Soto has a historic past. The historic fort guide can be downloaded here:

The park also has seven-mile paved trails for runners, cyclists, rollerblading, and strollers. Or, load up to eight people on a covered surrey bike (rent one near the concession area). On foot? Start at North Beach and make your way south, and explore the shorter nature trails.
