Growing up in Florida, one of my favorite memories is going to the sandbars in Florida’s waters and beaches. There is something that calls to you when you see a sandbar to swim, wade, or boat out to this beautiful piece of Florida sand that is partially exposed out of the water or even just under the surface. These underwater sandbars can be spotted as lighter areas, sometimes the place where offshore birds may gather and more often a gathering of boats during weekends and holidays.

While there are lots of islands all around Florida, many of which are secluded and awesome destinations for boaters, Sandbars have been growing in popularity as a destination for boaters to gather on top of shallow waters. Sandbars offer a piece of paradise that can be enjoyed with friends and lots of fellow boaters who are looking for a community of fun in the sun sandbar seekers, or it can be enjoyed as a secluded location, a hidden gem, just waiting to be explored. 

Sandbars just off the beach

If you've been to some of the beaches in Florida, there are times when you will see people standing in knee deep water beyond where there are swimmers. These underwater sandbars along the beaches can change from storm to storm and season to season but is always a fun excursion off the beach shore to explore. This is a haven for shelling and exploring.Take a mask and snorkel and check out the fish and sandy bottom.

It is common in Florida to have small sandbars just offshore along the beaches that occasionally appear and can become a fun spot for locals. These are typically underwater, so you don't know they are there until you see people standing knee deep in water beyond where there are swimmers.

Sandbar’s by Boat

20 years ago, when you found a sandbar and dropped anchor, there were rarely very many other boaters sharing the space with you. But this little piece of paradise couldn’t be kept secret and today, these sandbars have become extremely popular for boaters all around Florida. Sandbar party zones, as referred to by some locals, are the best place to drop anchor gather with friends.
