Best Hidden Gem Beaches

Odds are good you’ve heard of St. Pete Beach, TripAdvisor's No.1 Beach Destination in the U.S. (and No. 5 in the world) for 2012, or Fort De Soto Park, whose North Beach was named America’s best family beach by Parents magazine in 2011. But St. Petersburg/Clearwater also conceals a cache of lesser-known beaches, many of them cozily tucked into residential neighborhoods. For a more laid-back fun-in-the-sun day in the Tampa area, retreat to these hidden shores, which are spiked with all your favorite activities, from pier-fishing to delectable dining.

1 Belleair Beach

Belleair Beach

Lay of the Land: This 4500-foot quiet and secluded white-sand shoreline on a barrier island is surrounded by some of the most impressive waterfront homes on the West Coast of Florida. You'll find free parking in palm-dotted Morgan Park and boaters can tie up at the 7th Street Park Boat Ramp and the Municipal Marina across the street from the beach.
Why You Should Go: No crowds, no active sports, fascinating sea turtle and sea bird nesting sites, luxurious peace and quiet.
