Which Golf shores beach in Florida?

Jump to last reply

We are planning a trip somewhere and have been considering the Caribbean. It will be my husband and 3 year old. I am pregnant and will be in my second trimester when we are considering traveling. I am attracted to the Caribbean turquoise clear waters but just a little hesitant due to water issues on some of the islands. I have a thread going in the Caribbean forum and Aruba was suggested since they have a good water filtration system. Since I am pregnant I am more prone to food borne illness, water issues etc. We are considering going in August or September. (I know the height of hurricane season). So I will have to look into trip insurance. I need that anyway since I am pregnant. Due to water issues, being pregnant etc we are considering domestic travel.

Anyway, what are some recommended beaches on the gulf side that will give us that turquoise clear caribbean feel? I have read about Siesta Key and Anna Maria Island. Any that are good or which out of those two are better? Someone suggested Captiva Island but I have read that the water isn't as clear there because of the shells stirring up the sand.

What are recommendations for the best beach experience in Florida. We would prefer a beach that is less crowded and not wall-to-wall people. We go to OBX in NC every year so we are spoiled by uncrowded beaches. Thanks for any recommendations. Also, a relatively close drive from any of the major airports.

Thanks!
