On one of the beaches of Ft. Desoto Park one can see the Sunshine Skyway Bridge in the distance. The picture on this page shows that. However, the sky makes it hard to see the bridge. Also, make your plans to visit Ft. Desoto in the morning. The park can become sweltering if the breeze is little or none.
The beaches of Treasure Island offer a relaxing and senic atmosphere for that early morning or late evening stroll. The soft sand and the lights of the hotels at dusk bring a feeling undescribable. Watch out for the occasional fisherman's pole and line...because it might be me. Sometimes it is just fun to stop and watch a fisherman for a few minutes, hoping that big fish will hit just as you watch. Dolphins frequent the shore line, just adding to the splendor of the beach.
This is an old Spanish fort that has been converted into a park. Much of the fort and its weaponry are still there and can be walked on/through.
The park has a series of beaches that one can walk out to the sand bar and get as many sand dollars as one can hold.
There are also two fishing piers at the park. Spanish Mackeral are the fish of choice here.
Every sunday night at sundown there are tons of locals and some seasonals playing instruments in a big circle on the beach. The music is good and the people are fun. A great getaway from all the tourist traps.
just go down south on gulf blvd. until you hit the treasure island fun center. It is on the beach accross from the center. You will hear it.
