One Four and Six are the numbers Tripadvisor has assigned to Tampa Bay beaches

TripAdvisor®, the world’s largest travel site, today announced the winners of its Travelers’ Choice® awards for Beaches. For the second year in a row, Florida’s Clearwater Beach is named the number one beach in America. Of the 25 best beaches in the U.S., 40 percent are in Florida . Award winners were determined based on the quantity and quality of traveler reviews and ratings for beaches on TripAdvisor, gathered over a 12-month period.

Tripadvisior named Clearwater Beach the number one beach in the world. A recent review stated “Clearwater Beach is a very family oriented beach. There is ample parking along the beach and a metered parking lot. The beach itself has very fine white sand, which is very clean, with bathrooms and various places to wash the sand off your feet as you leave the beach.”

Ranked number Four is St Pete Beach. A mere 10 miles or so south of Clearwater Beach. They write “Amazing time – beautiful beach – what’s not to love? The sand is soft, silky and warm for strolls along the beach and shell collecting. Love the warm water and the low tide levels for kids. An awesome weekend in a beautiful location with stunning sunsets, lovely food, the thing dreams are made of on vacation!” Reviews liked the Laid-back vibe, powder white sand, chair/umbrella rentals available

And a few miles further south is Siesta Key. Siesta Key ranked number 6 is an island off of Sarasota. Tripadvisior says  “If you want to hit a great beach with PLENTY of room, you found it! There are chairs and umbrellas available to rent, a place to get food and drinks (even adult ones), bathrooms, showers, volleyball, parasailing, and plenty of activities. We were able to throw the football with the kids without worrying about hitting anyone or running into anyone. Beautiful view!” The Public swimming beach known for its clean, hard-packed sand.
