We're Walking on Sunshine! Our Beautiful Beaches are Open. Please Enjoy Them Responsibly.

Sun and fun is the order of the day along our 35 miles of sparkling shores, but please remember that safety is very important, too. Be kind, be patient and please enjoy our beaches responsibly so that they can remain open for all to enjoy. While there is no official requirement or law at the beach at this time, we ask that you practice physical distancing, keeping at least six feet away from others who aren't in your family or group - whether on the sand, at the concession or restrooms. Speaking of groups, it's still important to avoid gathering in groups larger than 10 people. The CDC recently recommended that beachgoers wear masks at the beach except when swimming - even if you don't want to do this, it's a great idea to bring a mask to wear in places such as the restrooms, where physical distancing can be more difficult. Pack some hand sanitizer, too, just in case. Wear sunscreen, stay hydrated, and have a fabulous beach day!

Know Before You Go: Guide to the Beach Flag System

Different colored flags are found on public beaches throughout St. Pete/Clearwater. When you head to sunbathe on the beach you picked from the map above, you might spot a flag on display. Check out what each flag color means below.

  • Green Flag: Grab the sunscreen, you’re good to go! Conditions are calm and normal.
  • Yellow Flag: Surf’s up! Visitors (especially those with small children or poor swimmers) should use caution.
  • Purple Flag: It’s an ocean, after all. Potentially dangerous marine life (such as jellyfish and stingrays) or conditions are present.
  • Red Flag: High surf or strong currents are present, and visitors should stay out of the water.
  • Double Red Flag: The beach is closed due to conditions such as high surf, rip currents or other factors.
