White sand beaches, green golf courses

The west coast of the “Sunshine State” lures with splendid beaches. For those who like action, Tampa Bay is great for fishing trips, pirate cruises or skimming across the water in a speedboat. Beautiful white sand beaches await visitors in the nearby towns of Clearwater and St. Petersburg. These beaches are considered to be the finest on the Gulf of Mexico.

Florida’s third-largest city is also a paradise for golfers and adventurers. Nowhere else in the US will you find as many golf courses as in Tampa and the surrounding area. The most popular sights include Busch Gardens theme and amusement park, Adventure Island waterpark, Giraffe Ranch and The Florida Aquarium.
