The Tampa Bay airport is also close to the beach, which makes it easily accessible to passengers that want to spend their time bathing instead of waiting on the airport. The beach offers picnic shelters, amazing sunset views and also an access to the Courtney Campbell Trail which is a 4-mile walking trail.

Caladesi Island State Park

The beach at this park is the most beautiful beach on this list, and also one of the most beautiful beaches in the whole country. The biggest feature of this beach is that it has nothing that is manmade, so it is all natural.

Davis Islands Beach

This beach was made by filling two small islands with mud. It was named by a developer D.P. Davis. It was his vision to make a vacation community with hotels, golf courses, and airport. It never reached the dream of the developer, but the beach is marvelous and is a popular destination for the residents of Tampa. It is often crowded with boats so it's not the best choice for swimming, but it is perfect for picnics.

There are 20 ways to get to this beach, so it is easy to reach it from your hotel. The only amenities you can find here are some showers, restrooms, and parking.
