Fort Desoto is located just south of Tierra Verde, and was rated America’s Top Beach in both 2008 and 2009 by TripAdvisor. In 2005, Fort Desoto was also recognized by Dr. Stephen P. Leatherman, also known as “Dr. Beach,” for being the nation’s number-one beach.
Fort Desoto features rare, pristine, white sandy beaches along with unadulterated wildlife, plants, and birds. Along with a 1,136 acre park complete with hiking trails, a large campsite, and a popular fishing pier, Fort Desoto offers a stunning glimpse of the Sunshine Skyway Bridge, particularly during twilight hours, just as the sun is about to set.
