Fort De Soto Park in Tierra Verde, Pinellas County, Florida is one of Florida’s best beaches but also a great place for fishing, camping, kayaking, boating & birding! And the scenery is not bad, either. There is even an old historic fort to wander through.
The Sunshine Skyway Bridge is visible from… the East beaches & loop. You can catch the sunrise on one side & the sunset on the other side!
The fishing piers are very popular and I have seen many fish caught off of them. As well as sightings of dolphins and rays! The white sandy beaches are a less crowded alternative to the beaches to the north in Pinellas County.
When I make the trip over to this wonderful park I am on the look out for wildlife, particularly, birds. During the winter months the birds are usually very plentiful but there are usually some year round residents to be found during all seasons.
There are shorebirds, raptors, and songbirds in the various environments found on the island.
