Make a holiday villa in Apollo Beach your home away from home

Apollo Beach holiday villas enjoy a convenient position at the heart of Tampa Bay, but far enough away from the metropolitan bustle to the north to provide a relaxing retreat after a day on the beach, water, nature trail or golf course. However, a short drive soon gets guests into the thick of it, for eclectic nightlife, great shopping and professional American sport. All Apollo Beach apartments and villas have access to a golf course, betraying this area as a hub for Florida's primary pastime. Most are also sited on a waterfront and have access to a pool, so guests are never far from a cooling dip. Air-conditioning can also help in this regard. Some rentals at Apollo Beach also come with satellite or cable TV, a BBQ area, and internet connectivity.

Things to do

-Beaches: The beaches around Apollo Beach holiday accommodation are some of the best in the world, with the famed quartz Florida sand lending the beaches their legendary snow-white appearance. However, the few local beaches are quite small. For the lengthy beaches Florida is famous for, a short drive or boat ride out of Tampa Bay proper can get guests to the Gulf Coast seaboard, where they await.

-Watersports: With the Tampa metropolitan area surrounding the huge Tampa Bay, boating is a way of life here. Apollo Beach rentals are convenient for quite a number of marinas, which can supply guests with whatever they need, whether that be for fishing and waterskiing, or diving and nature watching at the nearby Cockroach Bay.

-Nightlife: There's not an awful lot to do and see in Apollo Beach when the sun goes down. There are a few restaurants and bars worth visiting, but the myriad lights of the city to the north provide far more choices in the way of evening diversion.

-Golf: The Apollo Beach community is centred on a golf course, so it's no surprise that all Apollo Beach rentals are convenient for the game. But golf-mad guests are not confined to one course: there are five or six more in a ten mile radius, including the Bay Palms Golf Complex directly across the bay. Ever been to play golf in a boat?

-Theme Parks: While Orlando may think it has the Florida market for theme parks locked down, Tampa raises a legitimate challenge with Busch Gardens. An Africa-themed 335 acres of white-knuckle rides supports this claim, and the attached 30 acre water park, Adventure Island, drives it home.

Weather in Apollo Beach

The weather in Florida is typical of a humid subtropical climate, with long, hot, wet summers and short, dry, mild winters. The winter is considered the high season, and it's unsurprising: it often resembles a British summer, with temperatures in the low-20s and little in the way of rain. Summers can reach the mid-30s temperature-wise, which ordinarily is a fairly tolerable extreme but the humidity can make it feel much hotter. Most of the Florida's annual precipitation falls during the summer as late thunderstorms.

Travel to Apollo Beach

Flying and driving is always the most popular choice of travel in America for good reason: it's the least expensive and most convenient, at least outside of the public transport-dominated New York and perhaps Chicago. There is a limited bus service in the Tampa Bay area, however, so doing without a car could be a possibility, but is not recommended. Tampa International Airport is about 25 miles from Apollo Beach.
