4974 Gulf Of Mexico Drive Unit Villa 19, Longboat Key
Suncoast Beach Towns Real Estate
The Suncoast region of Florida is basically defined as the west-central coastal area. The region contains nearly 150 miles along the Gulf of Mexico and is known for its beautiful sandy beaches, vibrant communities, warm climate, and abundant sunshine that attract thousands of visitors and would be residents from all over the world.
For those people that love the beach lifestyle and only want to consider living as close as possible to the Gulf, I thought it would be helpful to highlight some charming, but perhaps lesser-known beach towns that mark our incredible coastline. These towns offer a unique blend of relaxation, outdoor activities, a sense of community, and natural beauty including breathtaking sunset views over the Gulf of Mexico.
Appearing from north to south:
Belleair Beach and Belleair Shore – This is a peaceful and residential area with an emphasis on preserving its natural surroundings. It’s a serene spot for enjoying the beach without the crowds.
Indian Rocks – This beach offers a tranquil and family-friendly atmosphere. Visitors can enjoy beachfront parks, watersports, and mix of restaurants and shops along the coast areas.
Indian Shores – Is a quiet and relaxing destination known for its uncrowded beaches and natural beauty. It’s a great spot for birdwatching and enjoying sunsets.
Reddington Beach and Reddington Shores – These neighboring towns offer a laid-back vibe and awesome scenery. They are known for their residential feel, quaint accommodations, and easy access to the beach.
Madeira Beach – A charming coastal town with a relaxed atmosphere and beautiful Gulf views. It’s known for its fishing opportunities, with John’s Pass Village & Boardwalk offering shopping, dining, and water activities.
Treasure Island – With its pristine beaches and clear waters, Treasure Island is a popular destination for beachgoers. The town hosts various events and festivals and provides ample opportunities for beachfront dining and shopping.
St. Petersburg Beach – This beach doesn’t really qualify as a lesser-known beach town. In fact, St. Pete Beach was named No. 1 Best Beach in the United States and #5 Best Beach in the World by TripAdvisor, 2021. It is a vibrant and lively community with a wide range of water sports, upscale resorts, and a bustling beach scene. The historic Corey Avenue area offers shopping and dining, while Pass-a-Grille provides a laid-back beach experience.
Gulfport – Is a quirky and artsy town known for its colorful architecture, art studios, and unique shops. It has a bohemian atmosphere and hosts various event like art walks and farmer’s markets.
Tierra Verde – Is a more secluded and upscale community known for its upscale waterfront homes, marinas, and access to Fort DeSoto Park.
Anna Maria Island – Located just across the Skyway Bridge, a key passage from Pinellas County to Manatee County, you can find Anna Maria Island. This is a quaint and serene beach town known for its pristine white sand beaches, crystal-clear waters, and old Florida charm. The town maintains a laid-back atmosphere with cozy cottages, bike friendly streets and beautiful beachfront parks.
Holmes Beach – Situated in the middle of Anna Maria Island, Holmes Beach offers a mix of residential areas and vacation rentals. The town features a variety of shops, restaurants, and art galleries.
Bradenton Beach – Nestled on the southern end of Anna Maria Island, Bradenton beach boasts a vibrant atmosphere with its lively Pier area. The Historic Bridge Street Pier offers shopping, dining, and fishing opportunities.
Longboat Key – While part of Longboat Key extends into Sarasota County, a portion of this upscale barrier island falls within Manatee County. Longboat Key is renowned for its luxury resorts, golf courses, and pristine beaches. It offers a more tranquil and exclusive setting compared to some of the busier beach towns.
