The Nuthouse

Weekdays 3PM - 7PM

Not all TikTok challenges should be followed. Like the “How deep can you dig?” challenge for example. Deep holes are showing up around Florida beaches that could be dangerous to beachgoers and wildlife. One person has found four holes around 5 feet deep and 4 feet wide, just this past week. The problem is people are digging the holes, but not refilling them!

The Marco Island Police Department posted a photo to Facebook last week showing a large hole that was left on a beach with a shovel left inside. The department asked anyone digging holes on the beach to make sure they fill them in before leaving.

“Please refill the hole and kindly take your things with you. It’s a hazard to other beachgoers, especially our beautiful sea turtles.”

3 Favorite Beaches to Visit in Tampa Bay

  • Clearwater Beach

    Clearwater Beach might be the very first beach you think of when you think of the Gulf Coast. That might be because been Trip Advisor’s No.1 Beach in the U.S.A. back in 2016, 2018, and 2019.

    There are also so many accessible restaurants nearby, which offer a lot of great happy hours.

  • St. Pete Beach

    Just south of Clearwater Beach is St. Pete Beach. St. Pete recently placed #5 on Trip Advisor’s list for best beaches in the world. Postcard Inn on the Beach, one of St. Pete’s most popular beach bars is a great place to grab a drink and even play some volleyball. More of a Bloody Mary person? You might want to check out Rick’s Reef and their Bloody Mary bar.

  • Indian Rocks Beach

    Indian Rocks Beach gives off much more of a local vibe. The traffic isn’t as bad as Clearwater Beach or St. Pete Beach gets, and they even have a Crabby Bill’s location.
