Gorgeous, laid-back St. Pete Beach
Voted TripAdvisor's No. 1 Beach in the U.S. and No. 5 in the world in 2012, based on millions of reviews from travelers around the world. When you visit this magical expanse of sand, you’ll understand why.
St. Pete Beach’s shores include the longest undeveloped stretch of public beach in the county at Pass-a-Grille Beach. Live it up with a variety of watersports, from parasailing and stand-up paddleboarding to windsurfing and kiteboarding.
There are plenty of places to set up camp in St. Pete Beach—the town's beaches are sprinkled with nostalgic Old Florida motels and inns. If you’d rather opt for the five-star experience, the Loews Don CeSar Hotel, known as the Pink Palace, or the Tradewinds Island Resorts, offer beachfront property along with full-service amenities.
For lively diversions away from the shore, head to the Corey Avenue district. For over six decades, Corey Avenue has thrived at the heart of St. Pete Beach. There’s a variety of funky specialty shops, galleries, restaurants and more. Plan to spend an hour or an entire afternoon just on this stretch of town.
