Anchored boats dot the beaches of this sandy island suburb near downtown Tampa. The panoramic views of the port and Tampa make it the perfect spot to sit on the sand and watch the boats go by. It’s home to the fluffy white sand of Davis Island Beach. There’s a small beach near Hillsborough Bay as well, but most of the area is dedicated to being a dog park. The water is shallow and rock-free – you don’t need to worry about your dogs hurting themselves.
