Crystal Beach Florida is indeed Paradise! Crystal Beach is a small community that is situated in northern Pinellas County, directly on the Gulf of Mexico! There are no traffic lights within Crystal Beach and you can use your golf cart on ALL of Crystal Beach's roads!!!
Being a small Gulf front community has its advantages! People are friendly and it is not unusual to find people taking strolls along the waterfront or sitting on one of the numerous benches at the Crystal Beach Pier watching the dolphins frolic in the Gulf.
Convenient to Tampa, St Petersburg and Clearwater, Crystal Beach is just south of famous Tarpon Springs - home of many transplanted Greeks! In Tarpon Springs you can enjoy wonderful Greek meals in some of the best ethnic restaurants around! You can also go out on the sponge boats and watch the divers bring up sponges. That was how Tarpon Springs started - Greeks came over here from the Greek Islands and our local sponge diving business started. Today it is mostly a tourist attraction. You can stroll the sponge docks and make wonderful purchases in one of the stores of items normally found only in Greece. Everything from clothing and trinkets to Greek music is available right here!
To the south of Crystal Beach is Clearwater - home of Clearwater Beach! It is a favorite Spring Break location for the college students! In Clearwater Beach you can board a pirate boat and spend a few hours out in the bay or visit the Clearwater Marine Aquarium which is also a rescue aquarium for local sealife!
There is so much to do in the area, but my favorite part of living in Crystal Beach is the peace and tranquility of spending quiet afternoons along the waterfront, contemplating just how wonderful life is! Living in Crystal Beach is indeed living in Paradise!!!
