Clearwater beach has white sand but Water isn't blue. Its Clear/Gray.

Maybe Sanibel Is The Closest.

Ft. Lauderdale BEach has Golden-White Sand Or Dark White and Blue Water

LOl I Dont know... Becahes Changed since I last been.

I find it depends upon time of year, the temperature and other factors. I've witnessed Clearwater Beach's water as being blue and as you describe it. Someone once told me the stiller the water, the bluer it gets...don't know if that's true or not.

I thought the Fernandina area had the best beaches. Well I guess I'm the only one who thinks that

The clarity and "blueness" of the water I believe has mostly to do with how much "stuff" is floating in it. The Florida keys can be quit clear but when the wind churns it up it visabilty drops dramaticaly. The Bahamas are crystal clear and blue, basically because there is no silt or run off from the low lying coral islands. Fernandina has nice beaches but the water is green and you can't see more then about 6 inches into it. Probably because of all the wet lands around the island. Lots of silt and other things suspended in it.
