Hudson Beach Park

Pasco County has several small beaches that are family friendly and perfect for children. Robert Strickland Memorial Park (also known as Hudson Beach) is just such a beach, and boasts a marina, boat ramp, fishing, picnic shelters, and a playground. Hudson Beach also has a few beachfront restaurants, where you can enjoy a cocktail or dinner and watch the beautiful sunsets.
The waters here are fairly warm year-round and very shallow and smooth. The beach is comprised of powdery white sand, and kids will love building castles when they aren't swimming, or snorkeling and marveling at the fish swimming near them.
