Best place in florida for clear water, white sand and a private beaches?

Looking to go to Florida in late September early October. Would like to find a rental on a private beach where I wont see many people, would want somewhere with clear water and white sand and still reasonably priced... say under 1000 a week. Any recommendations?

There seems to be a pattern here--looking for Florida, Caribbean, and central America in the same week, but never coming back to check even when there are good ideas of sites. ;o)

OP says she is trying to do beach vacation on a secluded/private beach on a very low (if not impossibly low) budget. First it was $2,000 for a week and now it's down to $1,000 for a week and in one other post she said between $100 and $150/ night.

Gotta be a troll!

30a won't be very crowded

Indian Pass and Cape San Blas will be even less crowded.

We've stayed in a rental and barely saw 10 people all week on the gorgeous beaches - in the summer.

But as far as I know, and please do correct me if I;m wrong, there are no private beaches in Florida. Uncrowded, relatively, is possible, but not private, at any price.

Private does not always mean ownership. I believe the OP is looking for relative quiet and privacy - eg no crowds, not a lot of noise. Not strict privacy, ala Blue Lagoon... but I could be wrong.

Not trying to troll. I decided against Mexico or Caribbeans due to travel. I am in Texas and getting to Florida will be relatively easy. Also went lower on the price because I figure the prices there would naturally be lower than else where. Just want to go somewhere uncrowded with pretty waters to snorkel and swim in. Thanks for all the help!

Thanking people for responding doesn't get you much around here.

OP: stay on the gulf coast somewhere if you want that really white sand and no there aren't any private beaches in Florida but we make it hard for people to park nearby and get to them sometimes.

I agree with Dukey. If I were you, I would look at VRBO, focussing on the gulf coast but staying away from pricy areas like Naples. Also avoid Clearwater and St. Pete Beach because, while very pretty beaches, they are always pretty crowded. The Florida Gulf Coast is famous for its white sand and calm, clear water...

Interesting that people who accused the OP of being a troll are now giving lectures on polite board behavior!

If you want to snorkel, you need to go to the Keys. Not much coral anywhere else for good snorkeling...but then you get the problem of pretty beaches (not much sand in the keys).
