There is Pine Island which is about 12 miles if that. Clearwater is about 40 mins away. Depends on what kinda of beach you are looking for. Pine Island is peaceful not very big. Clearwater has white sand and is very crowed but nice. Fred Howard Park is also about 30 min away. I like Pine Island myself. If you want a real beach you need to goto Daytona about 4 hrs away. They all offer different things it just depends on what you want.

Default beach

Pine Island is a nice little beach, but sometimes the water can be sorta yucky, with lots of jelly type fish in it. And LOTS of sea weed! Much nicer is Clearwater, or you can drive to the Atlantic side for real beaches!

WOW, I guess it depends on what you guys consider 'real' beaches because I think the best beaches BY FAR are on the gulf shores of Florida like Siesta Key, St. Pete, Panama City, Destin & Pensacola to name a few. But to each his own I guess. Explore them both (east coast & west coast beaches) & enjoy!

Not much in the way of beaches around SpringHill, Pine island near the end of sr50 isnt bad but its not really a swimming type of environment and its so small it runs out of parking quickly on the week ends.
Theres a bit of sand called Hudson Beach.
Small beach in New Port Richey called Green Key
Further south near where Alt19 separates from 19 you have the Anclote Key beach rather small
further south and about the same size as Pine Island you have Frank Howard Park.
Further south Honeymoon and Caledesi island beaches,rather small and can be crowded
Clearwater and points south are your main large Beaches.
