    45 minutes from both Tpa and St. Pete. Accessible only by ferry or private boat, Caladesi offers no paved roads, 3 miles of beaches,birding trails,shelling, & the to (blissfully) do nothing at all.

    Great Beach. Only accessable by boat or ferry. They have some concessions. But it not as crowded as CLW Beach.

    Gorgeous Beach, tons of shells on the North end

    Views from this 500-acre park are breathtaking, especially at sunset, one of the reasons Caladesi regularly shows up on Dr. Beach's list of top 10 U.S. beaches. (The Short List: Top 5 beaches.) Read more

    Rangers here are awesome. If u get nailed by a sting ray they'll help u out (hot water soak will bring relief in an hour). Really appreciated Ranger Tracy's help, she's super! ;)

    Best tuna melt around!! Great fries!! Then work it off by going kayaking in the mangroves. Then we enjoyed a cold beer on the deck! Gotta love Florida...

    Great peaceful place to chill. Wake up to amazing sunrises manatees and dolphins with your breakfast. Bask in the gulf warm therapeutic water, if you're lucky you'll find a sand dollar or turtle
