A free boat comes with the house (see photo below). With the optional motor, you can fish the grass flats and journey to beautiful Anclote Key, the State Wildlife preserve which is an island about 4 miles offshore.
Florida Beaches in the area
The beaches along the Sun Coast of Florida are some of the most beautiful and safest in the world.
These include the following:
1. Anclote Key
2. Fred Howard Park
3. Honeymoon Island
4. Caladesi Island
5. Clearwater Beach
6. Treasure Island
7. St Pete Beach
8. Fort De Soto Park
The string of beaches from Anclote Key in the north to Fort De Soto in the South covers 36 miles and has some of the best beaches in the United States, including Hawaii. These beaches range from isolated, undeveloped tropical islands accessible only by boat (Anclote Key, Caladesi Island) to packed tourist beaches with all the souvenir shops, grouper sandwich shops, and nightclubs. The people that rank beaches, place Caladesi Island State Park, Anclote Key State Park, and Fort De Soto park in the top ten beaches in the United States, with most of the other top ten beaches being in Hawaii.
The slope of the beach is very gentle, making the beaches safe for small children to play at the waters edge. Every possible water sport can be enjoyed along these beaches including fishing in the grass flats, deep-sea fishing, boating, sailing, canoeing, sea kayaking, SCUBA diving, wind surfing, shelling, para-sailing, swimming, and water skiing.
Anclote Key State Preserve
More than 1,000 years ago, this island was pushed up from the floor of the Gulf of Mexico to rest on a limestone platform. This 4 mile long island is one of the few truly unspoiled and undeveloped islands left along the Florida coast.
The abandoned lighthouse on the southern end of this remote island adds to the islands fragile beauty and character. The lighthouse was built in the 1880's and server almost 100 years to protect the mariners in the Gulf of Mexico. With the advent of more modern navigational tools such as the LOng RAnge Navigation System (LORAN) and later the Global Position System (GPS) it became obsolete. It was decommissioned in 1984 and for the last 16 years has been abandoned.
Rare and endangered birds and turtles inhabit Anclote Key. Visitors travel to the island by boat every year to enjoy the more than 43 species of birds that live there including the American Oystercatcher, Bald Eagle, and Ospreys (sometimes called fish eagles). The Ospreys have numerous nesting sites in the tall pine trees that cover the island. Turtles can also be spotted on the island including endangered Loggerheads and Green Turtles.
The main activities on the island are swimming in the shallow Gulf waters that are as warm as a bathtub in the summers. The gradual slope of the beaches makes it easy for oldsters as well as youngsters to enjoy the clear warm waters, which are said by some to provide solstice for the soul as well as the body. Shelling is also a favorite activity. Several species of shells can be collected. Sand dollars can also be found by digging your toes into the sand in about 2 or 3 feet of water and feeling the sand dollars under the surface of the sand. The sand dollars vary in size from 1 to 6 inches across.
Fred Howard Park
This park was first opened in 1966 and is located at the end of a mile long causeway west of Florida Ave. in Tarpon Springs, this is a beautiful beach area. The swimming and sunbathing is excellent. The facilities include very nice sheltered picnic areas, playgrounds for the kids, restrooms, Bar-B-Q grills, and beach showers. Bring your fishing poles and your wind surfers. This is a very popular park with the local Floridians and over 2 million people visit the park annually. On weekends it can be crowded, but on week days there are fewer people enjoying the sun and the water.
Hiding just north of Clearwater Beach, Tarpon Springs is one of the oldest cities on the Florida West Coast. The Greeks first settled this area around the turn of the century and started the Sponge Diving Industry. Visitors can enjoy the authentic Greek food in the more than 20 restaurants, shop in the sponge and souvenir stores, and board cruise boats for half day or day trips for casino gambling or fishing.
The Sponge Docks are listed in the National Historic Districts register. Along with the sponge docks are more than 140 art gallery/studios, antique shops, boutiques and restaurants.
On an island all it own, Clearwater Beach is the major "tourist beach" on the Florida Sun Coast. Every type of beach oriented activity can be found here. There are many great grouper sandwich shop where you can enjoy lunch relax with a cool beverage. With its many shops and miles of beach, the entire family can have fun here.
This island, along with Anclote Key, are two of the unspoiled, undeveloped islands that are on the Florida West Coast. Caladesi Island and Anclote Key are both only accessible by boat.
This island is accessible by a man made causeway. You will enjoy visiting the Honeymoon Island State Park where the activities include swimming, sunbathing, fishing, picnic shelters, and people watching. There is a special area where you can bring your pets to play in the sand and the water.
