Palm Harbor Sports & Recreation

With nearly 365 days of sunshine here, most days encourage the enjoyment of outdoor recreation. Proximity to both fresh and saltwater facilities gives Palm Harbor residents a wide choice of water-oriented recreation. Freshwater anglers enjoy good fishing in Lake Tarpon while saltwater fishermen head for the Gulf of Mexico. Water sports enthusiasts water ski, jetski, and cruise or sail either the Bay, Lake Tarpon, or venture into the Gulf waters and beyond. Locally you will find our white sand beaches are ranked in the top ten in the USA.
