Boca Grande every time - a real tropical paradise with pure white sand, wonderful shelling and crystal clear waters .... and only 5 miles from my lovely Florida home! Boca Grande is old thyme Florida - far removed from everything Disney ......... If only I could be there now ...........

Northern Ireland is so grey and wet today......... my office is 20 floors up in the air in Belfast and we are literally in the clouds - can hardly see a thing!!!!!!!! Far removed from my beach paradise....

Keeping my fingers crossed that I get to go out again on my next trip late November/early December.

I can't pick one!!!

Boca Grande and Sanibel are near enough for me to visit and I love them both for different reasons.

Went to Caldesi island beach first time Dec07 and will be back. (North of Clearwater off Honeymoon Island state park)

Only accessible by boat, lots of pretty shells voted one of the best beaches in the USA.

I also like Naples beach - first gulf coast beach I saw on my first trip in 97 and been back several time's since.

Finally Ann's beach i think it is called mid way down the florida keys...

Siesta key is the most beautiful beach in Florida and I've been to ALOT of beaches here (I live in FLA) if you want a quiet/ relaxed beach with not much to do but a gorgeous beach/water try Anna Maria which is about 20 mins from Siesta Key (sarasota)
