Spotlight on Florida: Blind Pass Beach

You have seen photos of this beach in various posts and no doubt you’ll see more in the future. This is one of my favorite spot, favorite beaches in Florida. It’s quiet, remote and beautiful. I have even swam with dolphins and manatees. At times the water is calm and other times like my last trip the waves are rough, excellent for body surfing. There is plenty of parking, a playground and picnic area, fishing and boating on Lemon Bay, restrooms and outdoor showers. Blind Pass Beach is perfect for families, outdoor sports, wildlife viewing and long strolls on the beach.
