Treasure Island beach

I live in Seattle and go back to Fl every year to get out of the rain and make sure the sun is still there.

I used to go to New Smyrna beach (just south of Daytona), but the hurricanes have decimated the beach there, so I'm looking for another location.

Would the beach at Treasure Island be hard packed enough to walk a mile or so without sinking in every step? I just love to walk in the surf for miles, but some beaches are just too soft (Pensacola, for example). Can anyone recommend a good beach for this kind of walking?

Yes, Treasure Island Beach is good for walking as is St. Pete Beach to the south and Clearwater Beach to the north.

Love, Love, LOVE the beach at TI. It's soft far back, but packed hard next to the water...you have the best of both worlds.

I live in St Pete. When I want to walk at the beach, I go to Treasure Island or Pass-a-grill.

I was there Christmas week-- it rained, but that just packed beach sand-- very nice for walks, watching the seabirds and picking up sea shells....make sure they are really empty-- my husband picked one up that later tried to crawl away!

any ideas? PLEASE help. we are planning this for june of 2006( the only time all of us can get together ).
