The Lower Gulf Coast Sights

Tarpon Bay Beach

Updated 05/12/2014

Fodor's Review

This centrally located beach is safer for swimming than beaches at the passes, where waters move swiftly. It is, however, one of the more populated beaches, lined with low-rise condos and resorts set back behind vegetation. Casa Ybel Resort lies east of the public access; other smaller resorts can be found along the stretch to the west. The parking lot is a five-minute walk from the beach, so drop off your gang and gear before you park (the lot is open daily from 7 am

to 7 pm). At the beach, you can walk for miles in either direction on soft white sand studded with shells. Amenities: parking (fee); toilets. Best for: swimming; walking.
