    I’ve got a week off at the end of February and want to go to a nice, warm, peaceful Florida beach that’s under the radar, not congested and affordable. Does anyone know a good spot?

    Destin beach highly recommend it's up towards Pensacola. Navarre is next to it very secluded area beyond beautiful water.

    Topsail Hill Preserve State Park

    3 miles of pristine undeveloped beach, the sand is so fine it squeaks when you walk on it
    No crowds, access is only through the state park

    I like Dunedin, Florida. West coast. Fairly low key. Great Scottish pubs, beaches, state parks.

    Do not go to the panhandle. It’s trash. Think of Kentucky, but in Florida. Fort Lauderdale, Boca Raton, Delray Beach area by far the nicest part. Miami also but then you are talking about an expensive trip.

    Definitely not interested in Miami or nearby costly places.

    The southwest coast of Florida is much better than the east coast. Less touristy and the beaches are nicer.

    His primary focus was ( peaceful Florida beach that’s under the radar, not congested and affordable ). I stand by my recommendation.

    Are you gay? Then Key West might be for you. Say hi to @Indecisi0n when you go there.

    Exception: The area between Destin and Seagrove. It starts to get trashy between Seagrove and PCB.

    We stayed at One Seagrove Place last summer and enjoyed it. There was a little seaweed but it wasn't too bad. I was shocked at how expensive Rosemary Beach was...crazy.

    I love the Clearwater/St. Petersburg area. Pass-A-Grille Beach is one of our favorites in summertime. Fort De Soto state park is also very nice.
