Tripps Travel Network highlights best beach bars in Florida.

Tripps Travel Network is announcing information to help vacation planners around the world with their next Florida vacation. With millions of international and domestic travelers headed to Florida each year, the state’s tourism industry is increasing at historic levels. Besides its world-famous theme parks, Florida is largely famous for its endless coastline. No matter where you are visiting in the state, a beach is easily within a comfortable driving distance. This affords the average vacationer with a multitude of choices but little information to help them choose a destination.

Tripps Travel Network is easing the vacationer’s choice by highlighting some of the state’s most popular beach bars. Scattered around the state, from Pensacola to Venice, these bars are sure to provide travelers an excellent break and some serious fun in the sun. Choices vary from walk-up bars to boat-up bars, but these three were the top rated choices by recent visitors to the Sunshine state.

Found in Pensacola Beach, up in Florida’s panhandle, Peg Leg Pete’s has been voted the number one beach bar not to be missed. Peg Leg Pete’s has been serving travelers for over twenty-four years, and Tripps Travel Network knows that its legacy will continue to grow as more and more travelers discover this unique establishment. The bar and restaurant is located right on the LaFitte Cove Marina, allowing guests to cruise their boat right in for a quick bite to eat and a refreshing drink. Peg Leg Pete’s is also well known for their oysters, as it originally opened as an oyster bar, but it’s menu now features everything from Cajun shrimp to key lime pie.

Tripps Travel Network second recommendation is on the famous Venice Beach, just south of Sarasota. Sharky’s on the Pier is situated right on the Gulf of Mexico and has been in operation for nearly thirty years. Having won multiple dining awards over the years, Sharky’s offers a multi-layered experience so guests can enjoy an elevated, panoramic view of a gorgeous sunset as they treat themselves to some of the coast’s best food and drink options.


The third top beach bar is in Flagler Beach, on Florida’s west coast. Tripps Travel Network suggests that The Golden Lion Cafe is not to be missed. Found just steps away from the Atlantic Ocean, The Golden Lion Cafe is the perfect place to enjoy some unforgettable ocean views, amazing food, and some of the best mixed-drinks around. Live music and special events are commonplace at the Cafe, so a lively atmosphere is just as common as the relaxing ocean breeze. The Golden Lion’s menu features travelers favorites including local craft beers, tacos, burgers, and of course plenty of fresh local seafood.
