Our award-winning beaches are the jewel of the St. Pete/Clearwater destination. Over the summer in 2023, our area experienced some storm surge along our beaches from Hurricane Idalia. As a result, Pinellas County is conducting a rolling series of small shoreline restoration projects, constructing dunes to mitigate erosion. The active project will move strategically along the coast, creating as minimal impact on beach visitation as possible. Should you come across an active work zone, it's important that you do not enter the area or step foot on or around the dunes. Learn more about the restoration project and find updated information on where the current temporary emergency shoreline restoration project is taking place.
At this time, red tide is not present on St. Pete/Clearwater's beaches.
