Located between Riverview (to the south) and Ruskin (to the north), Apollo Beach is considered by many to be one of the more affordable places to find waterfront property. With nearby access to shopping, popular restaurants and three major highways (I-75, US-41, and US-301), many people are finding the short commute to Downtown Tampa, Sarasota, or Orlando a scenic and easy one from Apollo Beach.
Apollo Beach is simply a beautiful waterfront community that finds itself as an outdoor paradise for year-round boating, fishing and exploring miles of waterfront and natural hiking trails in the nearby surroundings. Take a swim, find some seashells with the family, or just snap some spectacular photographs at the newly renovated Apollo Beach Nature Preserve. Or, go hang out with manatees in their warm water natural habitat, climb a 50 foot tall Nature Observation Tower, and experience a surreal adventure at the Apollo Beach Manatee Viewing Center. All of this nature is just waiting to be explored right in your backyard. You’ll find homes here from the $200,000’s to over $2,000,000 – and many of them with direct access to the Bay.
This area in southern Hillsborough County, affectionately known as the “SouthShore”, is definitely putting marks on the map with multiple appearances on HGTV’s House Hunters, an annual art festival known as the Apollo Beach Manatee Festival of the Arts, and a Family Seafood Festival bringing people from all over in town for a weekend of sun, fun, music and seafood! The SouthShore is also home to the beautiful Alafia and Little Manatee Rivers, both of which flow directly into Tampa Bay.
