On our way to see Willie Nelson at Ruth Eckerd Theatre nearby, we turned up at this hotel on a rainy wet day and had a fun time trying to get through all the road works on the Tampa highway 19 to find a way...More

Not that close, but which beach are you talking about? There's a nice beach at Fred Howard Park, which I'd guess is about a 20 minute drive from the hotel. The beach at Fred Howard Park is very nice and a short drive away... More
Not that close, but which beach are you talking about? There's a nice beach at Fred Howard Park, which I'd guess is about a 20 minute drive from the hotel. The beach at Fred Howard Park is very nice and a short drive away, but, the beach at Caladesi Island is world class! I'd recommend it if you have the time to go there. I believe the nearest town to it is Dunedin, and you have to go to the state park there and take a ferry to the beach. As I recall, the ferry costs about $5.00 per person, but it's worth it. It's a nice short ride through the Mangroves to get there, and there is a locker room where you can change into your swim suit, a snack bar and a shower to rinse off.
Caladesi Island beach is well worth the extra drive and the fare for the ferry. If you're only going to one beach, splurge and go to Caladesi!
