North Shore Park Beach

Categories: Attraction, Park, Beach

Features: Beach/Waterfront, City parks, Kid-friendly, Volleyball courts

Parking: Lot

This small stretch of sand along Tampa Bay just northeast of downtown St. Petersburg is more popular in the winter, when visitors arrive from the north to set up a lounge chair and soak up the sun. It's not really a good beach for swimming, since the bay's shallow waters and lack of tides make it more like a seaweed-filled bathtub. On some summer days, the smell of decaying plants can make for an unpleasant experience.

Still, it's a popular spot for pickup volleyball games in the summer, and the bocce balls come out when the tourists arrive for the winter.
