Seagrove Beach is among the best Florida Panhandle beach areas for families with good cause. This quiet beach area is less than a mile and a half from the downtown Panhandle and is surrounding by oak and pine trees, which make it seem as if a place which has stood still for quite some time. This calm beach is not only popular with tourists but also with those who like to enjoy nature and who like swimming. It is also where you can find some of the best restaurants in the city of Saint Petersburg. Because of this, here are some of our favorite places for strolling on the beach:
