All Sun Coast Beaches at a Glance
The Sun Coast is a colloquial name often referring to the west-central and southwest peninsular Florida coastal area. This stretch of beaches consists of 3 individual regions: the Sun Coast, the Cultural Coast, and the Lee Island Coast. It includes Tarpon Springs, Clearwater, Tampa/Saint Petersburg, Bradenton, Sarasota, Venice, Fort Myers, and Naples. However, when you live in the Sarasota/Venice area, you will probably focus on the beaches between Anna Maria Island and Gasparilla.
