I heart Florida.
Caladesi Island State Park, near Clearwater/Dunedin, FL was named America's top beachy by Dr. Beach is STUNNINGLY beautiful. Like most beaches along the gulf side of Florida, the sand is white, fine and soft and the water is breath-taking. You can only access this piece of paradise via private boat or ferry. Dolphins are regular visitors and you can kayak through the mangroves... or just sip your pina colada and sink your toes into that snow white sand.
I'm off to pack my battery-operated blender and swimsuit... is anybody with me?
