I'll start -

Gulf Islands National Seashore -

The beach is like virginity, untouched, soft white small grain sand, natural habitat, beautiful scenery, water is clean clear and yes, I found an unbroken sand dollar.

From Panama City Beach west through Ft. Walton Beach because of the 30' sand dunes and the coastal dune lakes:

You picked beautiful beaches to start with! Wow.

I'm so used to the Ocean side so I'd have to pick the Gulf side beaches. I still haven't made it to the panhandle. Well I've been to Panama City but I was a youngster so that doesn't count.

The panhandle has the most beautiful beaches. Ft.Walton is amazing. The water reminds us of St.Thomas. The sand is breathtaking

Fort DeSoto rocks. Be sure to check out the fort itself, it is worth a visit.

Perhaps I am biased at the moment, but I am moving to Fort Walton Beach next week and we took a quick trip there and the beach was gorgeous!
White sand, beautiful waters.. driving by I saw the sand dunes.. so I am pretty sure that's my favorite right now.

I am not sure what it's called.. but we were in Ft. Walton I believe!

As beachlovers it is really hard to pick just one because Florida has so many.

We like the panhandle beaches of course for it's beauty, water, sand etc. so if I had to pick one it would be the panhandle for many reasons.

But we also love Anna Maria Island.

While Fort Desoto is also very nice and would rank at the top of the group as well.
( Frank you will have to make sure you have plenty of film, it is that beautiful there! Clearwater is one of our must stop places as I have been going to that beach since I was very little )

St Pete beach is also very nice and toss in Siesta Keys are a wonderful beach.

Frank, if you get time run over to Anna Maria also.

We also like Ft Lauderdale beach. It is the about the only beach on the ocean side we like at all.
