Apollo Beach is an unincorporated census-designated place in Hillsborough County, Florida state. As per the 2010 census, its population was 14,055.
In the 1930's, Paul Dickman conceived of setting up a waterfront community in the area, previously considered uninhabitable.
Now, the CDP is a thriving waterfront community with year-round boating, fishing, and other water activities. The estimated 55 miles of canals lead to Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico via underpass of the Sunshine Skyway bridge.
