And, if you want to drive the other direction, you can be at the beautiful Gulf beaches in about 1 hr, 15 minutes. :goodvibes

I think the west coast beaches are much prettier. We went to Cocoa Beach last time we were there and I wasn't all that impressed :confused3

If I had to recomend any beach for someone to drive to from Disney, it would be Caladesi Island. It is by far the best beach I have been to in Florida and I have been up and down both coasts

When at the fort you are almost in the middle of Florida. Go east or west and you will find a beach. No more than an hour and a half in either direction.

My DW (Tx-Tink:) is wanting to find a beach with clear water. As close to WDW as possible.

Cocoa Beach is nice, and the closest. The only problem is no dogs allowed.

We stopped at Destin overnight on one of our drives from Texas. It is beautiful!

The most beautiful beach closest to FtW is Clearwater Beach. Cocoa Beach is just "okay" - but is about half the distance than C.B. The Gulf beaches are decidedly better than the Atlantic beaches.

From the few times I've been there, I love Siesta Key

I have to agree with this...the gulf has that emerald green water and un unbelievable breeze.......the atlantic was all muddy brown when I used to visit Daytona, and the sand and salt in the air would always make my chrome rust on my bike if I didnt give it a good rinse every other day or so.

The only bad thing about Siesta is that it would take a good 2 hours to drive there from FtW. Siesta Key has consistently been voted the top beach in the U.S. for at least 5 years. It is breathtakingly beautiful!!

I agree. We love Siesta Key! White Sand Beaches.... Of course I would not plan a trip there this week:)
