Brilliant Beaches and Towns

Spectacular beaches and picturesque communities packed with recreation and culture await you.

Welcome to beach nirvana. Situated on a sun-drenched peninsula separating the Gulf of Mexico from Tampa Bay, St. Petersburg/Clearwater offers 35 miles of award-winning, spectacular white-sand beaches that will satisfy anyone with a pair of flip-flops and a desire to turn relaxation into an art form.

Gorgeous Award-Winning Beaches

The truth is, in the St. Pete/Clearwater area, which is located 90 minutes from Orlando and 30 minutes from Tampa, no two beaches feel exactly the same. In between Fort De Soto and Caladesi Island you’ll find sun-soaked beach treasures of every type including quaint Pass-a-Grille, perfect for catching sunsets or bustling hot spots like Clearwater Beach, where “see and be seen” is an all-day activity.

Pamper yourself with a stay at beachfront resorts such as the Loews Don CeSar Hotel on St. Pete Beach, and the Sandpearl Resort on Clearwater Beach. Both offer amazing Gulf views, luxurious amenities and activities for children of all ages.

Discover Varied Art and Culture

Those venturing beyond the beach will find a stunning collection of recreational and cultural surprises sprinkled among the area’s 26 communities, each offering a distinct charm, feel and heritage. From the picturesque Greek sponge fishing town of Tarpon Springs to the Scottish-tinged village of Dunedin, where Highland Games are an annual tradition, your itinerary can be as varied—and unpredictable—as you want it to be.

Delicious Dining Options

A perk of dining in St. Pete/Clearwater is the number of restaurants that offer sparkling water views. Pull up a chair and look out over bays, inlets and the Gulf in all manner of eateries, ranging from lesser-known casual gems that welcome patrons in beach garb to fine dining establishments. All the restaurants have two things in common: excellent food and an unbeatable sand-and-water setting.
