The Beach: The reason for the 'Ten Best Beaches in Florida,' classification is immediately apparent to the first time visitor. Daytime from 'Casa Bella' offers splendid dolphin shows, great heron, sandpiper and seagull watching, and, of course, the exhilaration customary in the grand pelican fishing forays. A peaceful stroll at waters edge reveals one of the great shelling beaches on Floridas Gulf Coast. This special beach has plenty of flat terraced sand space for beach volleyball (provided), football, softball, or whatever while others sunbath. The gradual sloping waterfront is ideal for infants and youngsters (supervised) while offering adults a plethora of water sports from snorkeling to skim boarding. When sand & surf is too much, a refreshing dip in the pool rejuvenates. Yet, awe inspiring vistas seem to explode on the horizon at the end of the day. Punctuating this view, coconut palms and a beautiful private pier add splendor and depth to the horizon. It is simply spectacular!
