Photos
Blue beach umbrellas dot Caladesi’s white sandy beach with two sea kayaks in the foreground. An ADA accessible boardwalk leads across sand dunes and past green cabbage palms to the Gulf of Mexico and Caladesi Island’s beach. A green and yellow kayak plies the waters off Caladesi Island just as the sun is setting. Dozens of boats are anchored in Caladesi Island’s marina as a black-and-white cruiser enters the marina in the foreground and a wave runner leaves. The view from a boat entering the Caladesi marina shows a seawall with a welcome sign in the foreground and docks containing some of the 108 boats slips in the middle. In the distance are a small ticket booth and a picnic pavilion backed by a forest of green cabbage palms.
