Hello. Having been to beaches all over the world, it is surprising that I have never really been to Florida for the beaches. We love the Caribbean, but have spent a lot more time in Hawaii since we moved to CA.
Question: Are the beaches in or around St. Petersburg warm and clear in October? I want to avoid Miami and West Palm Beach areas if we could. I know that the beaches are beautiful in St. Petersburg, but are they comparable to the Caribbean in terms of current, warmth, white sand, crowds etc?
Thank you as always!
