Best Places to Buy a Beach House in Tampa Bay
The beaches. The weather. The amenities. Nothing says beach life like Tampa Bay. Along with being named one of the best places to live in the US (thank you Money magazine), the beaches of the Tampa area are among some of the finest in the country. So, if you're looking to buy that dream beach home, here are some of Tampa's most pristine beach spots.
St. Pete Beach
Set on a barrier island west of St. Petersburg, St. Pete Beach is known for its beach life. With the 1928 Don CeSar Hotel looming over the shore, the beach town sets itself apart with the Gulf of Mexico's alluring turquoise water and soft white sand. Home to historical museums and nature preserves filled with seabirds and turtles, St. Pete Beach continues to prove worthy of Tripadvisor's recent designation as the No. 1 Beach in the US and No. 5 in the world.
Close your eyes and imagine what the perfect beach sunset might look like. Now, open your eyes and soak in everything that is Clearwater Beach. Long considered home to one of the best beaches in the country, Clearwater’s scenic stretch of soft, white sand has everything people look for in beach living. Laid-back. Check. A world-class palm tree-lined beachscape with retail shops, restaurants, and beach attractions (Beach Walk Promenade). Check. One of the world’s best sunsets (Pier 60). Check. Jet-skiing, parasailing, paddle boarding. Check. And thanks to its revitalized downtown district, locals get a taste of city life with its laid-back, small-beach town atmosphere. Clearwater also offers the best in luxury living with Sand Key and Caladesi Island, which offer untouched, pristine beaches with million-dollar views.
Island charm. Casual luxury. Known as the “Sand Sculpture Capital of Florida,” Treasure Island is surrounded by soft, white sand and the beauty of the Gulf of Mexico.
