Just north of Tarpon Springs along the Intracoastal Waterway you’ll find Anclote Key. Enjoy the blue-green Gulf waters that lap gently along the sandy beaches of Anclote Key. Accessible only by private boat or ferry service, you’ll immediately notice the picturesque 1887 lighthouse standing on the southern end of the island. Visitors can swim and sunbathe at the beach, fire up a grill for a picnic or pitch a tent and enjoy a night of camping under the stars. There are no provisions offered on the island, so come prepared with your own supplies.
