Dr. Stephen Leatherman, aka Dr. Beach, has released his yearly list of the Top 10 best beaches in America and a Tampa Bay Beach has made the list. Caladesi Island in Dunedin has ranked seventh on the top 10 list this year and is on the top 10 list for the third year in a row. Dr. Beach says on his website about Caladesi Island, “Caladesi is reached by pedestrian ferry boat, private boats or a long walk north from Clearwater Beach; the inlet is closed so Caladesi is no longer a true island, but still a great getaway. The white beach is composed of crystalline quartz sand which is soft and cushy at the water’s edge, inviting one to take a dip in the sparkling clear waters. There are boardwalk trails, but my favorite is the kayak and canoe trails through the mangroves to see the large blue herons and other birds that frequent this wonderful natural area.”
Hapuna Beach State Park on the Big Island of Hawaii was the #1 beach on Dr. Beach’s top 10 list this year.
TOP TEN BEACH! For the THIRD year in a row, Caladesi Island State Park has been named as one of the best beaches in the country by Dr. Beach for its "crystalline quartz sand" and "sparkling clear waters"! 🏖🌊☀ DETAILS: https://t.co/h3RsKIuB11— FOX 13 Tampa Bay (@FOX13News) May 28, 2021
