As for fishing? some of the best fishing in the state just off shore in the flats but you will need some kind of boat.
Pasco and Hernando counties west of highway 19 might be your best bet..

There is a small beach here or about 50 minutes to Tarpon springs for a very nice beach.
that covered it.
Do you disagree, you really didn't say?

I'm not seeing anything to disagree about as the beaches north of Clearwater are kinda small and far between..
Are you talking about Frank Howard Park down near Tarpon Springs?

Englewood FL!.
On the east coast I-95 runs along the coast.
On the west coast, I-75 does the same, except you have to get off 75, then 41 and travel 776 to a place that development came to last. Cheapest place where you can live without having to carry a firearm. Look at a map.

I wouldnt say I-95 runs along the coast,close but if you really want a road that runs along the coast get on A1A.
The west coast has nothing similar to A1A however you can get close by taking Alt19 south at Holiday then Gulf Blvd from Clearwater south to the Skyway bridge.

What are some of the cheapest coastal areas in Florida? I heard that generally northern florida coastal areas are significantly cheaper-true?


Thanks so much for your time.
The Panhandle coast is going to be the cheapest, but finding a job will most likely be hard unless you come highly qualified in something . If you want to go real cheap and own something, then there are loads of Trailers around the Panhandle which are in good shape and close to the coast . I bought my 3 bedroom Mobile Home on an acre for just $58,500 and enjoy property taxes of just $136 per year. Cheap living if you dont mind living in the woods ...which i love.

Hhi there,
yes N Fla is cheaper however work is not. The best place I personally recommend would be the east space coast area for what you are looking for.(Brevard ****y-not the towns of Rockledge,Titusville,Eau Gallie or Cocoa but more so like Southern Brevard areas which is much cheaper especialy if you go to the slightly inner areas in towns like Palm Bay and Melbounre so it is still within 10-15 min to River and Beaches and only 1 hour form most all central Florida Major Attractions,too) Best of luck.

Probably Volusia and Brevard Counties are your best bet. Ormond by the Sea a real sleeper. Barrier island many older homes under $100k, great climate, a bit sleepy yet if you want the craziness of Daytona it is close by.

Look on realtor.com in zip code 32176. Most of the homes north of Granada are on streets that start on the ocean and stop on the intracoastal (water on both ends of the street). The barrier island is less than a mile wide (probably 2/3) so it is an easy walk to either body of water. Everything just north of Granada is a "no drive beach" and the condo crush isn't terrible on the ocean side.

You are about an hour from St Augustine and a few minutes more to Jacksonville. Orlando is just over an hour west. Highways are all 6 lane+
