Shired Island is the only beach located in Dixie County, Florida. At a glance, the beach appears like a perfect retreat. Don’t be fooled, though – the Class 5 toxic waste found in the water helped Shired Island earn its rank as one of the dirtiest beaches in Florida.

Bacteria found in the water surrounding Shired Island exceeds safety guidelines by nearly 100%, so find a different beach if you’re interested in snorkeling or swimming.
