SW FL BeachesThe Beaches of Southwest Florida’s Gulf Coast are the primary attraction for many visitors and residents of the Paradise Coast. We are protective and proud of the variety and beauty of the special places where the land meets the sea and the white-silver sand meets your toes.  Gulf of Mexico waters are warmer than the Atlantic side and ocean swimming here is year-round. Gulf of Mexico waters in Southwest Florida seldom drop much below 70 degrees Fahrenheit during the winter months. The SW FL Gulf of Mexico waters warm to over 90 degrees during summer.

There are dozens of public beaches in Southwest Florida. We present our pick for the Top Beaches in Beaches in Paradise and include some useful information about parking, services, and beach regulations.

Due to the sensitive wildlife and migrating birds, many of our beaches do not allow dogs. Please check and follow beach rules and regulations to help preserve our local wildlife.  Browse the Beaches of SW Florida. Add your business or inquire about  Paradise Coast SW FL marketing, contact us.
