How to Sneak in an Extra Beach

Posted by E.G.D. on April 11, 2017

Hello, beachgoers!  Greg and Jody are off on another one of their grand adventures, and true to form, they actually found an extra beach to visit in transit to a cruise that will be stopping at a large number of fabulous beaches.  Did you know that Cypress Point Park is walk-able from TPA (Tampa International Airport) and a good number of the airport hotels?  Granted, Google Maps says it could take a person an hour on foot from the airport.  For those of you who would rather do your walking on the actual beach, there’s a bus you can catch from the terminal for $2 each way.

It would appear it’s a lovely location for kicking around at the beach (albeit without your canine friends), as well as plane spotting!  According to Tampagov.net, “Cypress Point Park is a relatively undiscovered treasure with a beautiful beach. The park includes a .90-mile asphalt trail and .44 miles of nature trails. Cypress Point Park provides visitors with stunning sunsets, gorgeous beach walks, dunes, beach wildflowers, and fishing opportunities. Park amenities include a bus stop, ample parking, ADA accessibility, bicycle racks, benches, a boardwalk, a canoe launch and picnic pavilions.”

So, ladies and gentlemen, if you have a layover in Tampa and you don’t feel like spending hours and hours inside an airport, you now know that you have the option of popping out for a quick beach trip!  I don’t know about you, but when I’m flying long distances, I’ll take any excuse to stretch my legs, and there’s no better place to do that than a good beach.

Do you know any good escape-the-airport layover beaches?  We’d love to hear about them!  Please drop us a line in the comments, and if we get a good response, I’ll patch together an airport-beaches list for the site.  In the meantime, have a great day, hopefully at the beach.
