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. Experience a getaway where unique and rewarding possibilities abound. Where the beach is the thing but certainly not the only thing! Located just 90 minutes from Orlando and 30 minutes from Tampa and Busch Gardens.
Eating out - 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 wear, to fine dining establishments. In St. Pete/Clearwater, local seafood shacks serve the freshest fish and shellfish – and their casual atmosphere can be just as delectable.
Not to be missed – Water sports are a big part of everyday life. Kite surfing, windsurfing, snorkelling, tubing, addling and cruising on various watercrafts are favourite ways to enjoy the waterways. When you’re ready for a break from the beach head to downtown St Petersburg and a visit to the Dali Museum, home to the largest collection of Dali’s art outside of Spain.
Something different – The St Petersburg/Clearwater area has more than 50,000 registered boats and hundreds of miles of well-marked waterways so you can explore literally any stretch of the area’s coastline and find safe anchorages and places to refuel (both boat and belly)
