Fort De Soto State Park and Beaches!

Fort De Soto is a bike ride away from Tierra Verde. Fort De Soto is the south end of the Tierra Verde Island. It has miles of bike trails, a campground, nature trails, picnic areas, fishing piers, historic fort, a nature complex to learn about the wild life in the area and miles and miles of pristine natural beaches. Fort De Soto beaches were rated #2 in Florida. Crystal clear waters over white powdery sands.


This is one of the beaches in Fort De Soto. As you can see they are beautiful. Miles of beach kept in the same condition that early explorers experienced many moons ago! At each of the beach accesses there is plenty of free parking, covered pavillions and BBQ pits, bathrooms, showers. Some beaches in fort De Soto have a snack bar and fishing piers. Bike trails are all over the island. There is even a dog beach set up especially for dogs big and small. See Florida Beaches in its natural state.

There are several picnic pavillions bathrooms, showers and parking at each access. Plenty of room for everyone.

See how crystal clear the water is? Sea Shell hunting is great! I will show you my find from this day. Exploring can entertain you for hours!

We felt like we were desserted on Giligans Island. No crowds, no trash. Paradise a hop skip and a jump away!

Tierra Verde is the closest habitable waterfront community. A 2 minute drive or a 15 minute bike ride.

Please keep in mind this is just one of the beaches in fort De Soto. I did not take pictures of the pier, the historic fort, the nature trail, the waterfront campground, the nature center or other beaches and picnic areas.
