    What is your favorite Beach?

    Been to a lot, but probably prefer Orange Beach over the rest.

    What say you?

    Beaches don't really do it for me. It's boring. But I really like the Tampa/St. Pete/Clearwater area a lot. I could live there.

    Indian Shores Beach are our Go to places. But the Deuce is correct. I could live in that area for sure. Indian Shores is just below the Clearwater area.

    I would like to hear why a beach is your favorite beach. To me a beach is a beach. They are are plenty of beaches that are wide enough with white sand that it is hard for me to say one or the other is a favorite.

    San Destin Resort, Destin, Fl. Emerald water, foot deep white sand that is fluffed by rake daily, with awesome Tiki huts. Just a pure delight with wonderful weather.

    St. Pete, Panama City, Destin and others on the gulf coast all have beautiful soft white sand beaches. All are much nicer than east coast beaches with coarse darker sand.

    Florida gulf coast beaches, in my opinion, are nicer than Hawaiian beaches which have a lot of hard rough lave mixed in.

    Magen's Bay Beach, St. Thomas is my favorite.. Lido and Siesta Key beaches are as nice as any in the world.

    Grew up near the Delaware Beaches and Ocean City, MD, so for pure nostalgia purposes, they are still my favorite beaches. We keep going back to the Gulf Shores area, so those beaches are one of my favorite places to go.

    I like Tybee. Mostly quiet, plenty of food options within walkable distances, Savannah is just across the bridge.

    My favorite is Indian Rocks, though it is nothing like it was when I lived there. No pier, anymore. Elena took that out in 1985.

    I echo the sentiments of those who say beaches don’t do it for them. I’ll go Folly Beach simply because Charleston is one of my favorite cities in the country. If you made me move to one city today to live in the rest of my life, it’s Charleston no doubt.

    Abaco Bahamas. Clear water, not too many people. No dumb college kids.
