Three of the best beaches on the west coast of Florida are Naples Beach, Clearwater Beach and Siesta Key. Clearwater Beach is one of the best beaches because of the number of water activities in which travelers can participate. Naples Beach is popular because of its panoramic views.

If looking for something active, such as kayaking, Siesta Key provides many places to rent boats and water sports equipment. All three of these locations are coveted by travelers, in part because of the long stretches of white sand beaches. They also have expansive views of the ocean and, in the case of Clearwater Beach and Siesta Key, the charm of a classic beach town.
