Florida Gulf Coast

White sands & city-slicking

Visit the Florida Gulf Coast

Introduction

Florida's Gulf Coast is arguably one of the state's most exciting and varied regions, a place where white sands line waterfront cities filled with cultural riches and fine-dining eateries. 

The Gulf Coast runs from Tampa all the way down to the southern tip of Marco Island, one of Florida's Ten Thousand Islands. A chain of mangrove islets, this remote area is filled with diverse wildlife, best explore with a boat trip. Stylish Naples is well worth a stop too, known for its shopping malls, golf courses and excellent restaurants.

Then, Sarasota is known as Florida's cultural centre, home to the Ringling Museum of Art, while St Pete's plays host to the Salvador Dali Museum and nearby Captiva, a remote island made up of five miles of white-sand coastline and a tiny fishing village.
