Who says you have to go to the gulf to find white sandy beaches in Northwest Florida? Blackwater River and other area rivers have many white sandy beaches that are easy to access. One particular place we enjoyed recently was Blackwater River State Park. The state park is a beautiful park located along the cool flowing waters of the Blackwater River. This river is enjoyed by many in tubes, kayaks and canoes. It’s also an enjoyable place for fishing or sunbathing on one of the sandy beaches. So, if you are looking for an alternative beach, then check out Blackwater River State Park. Just see for yourself!
