Saint Pete Beach Information
About St. Pete Beach
St. Pete Beach lies on a barrier island along the central gulf coast of Florida. This quaint community (not to be confused with nearby St. Petersburg) has a population just over 10,000 but is a popular vacation destination thanks to its stunning white sand beaches, crystal blue water, and abundant sunshine (St. Pete apparently boasts a whopping average of 361 sunny days a year.)
Things to do in St. Pete Beach
St. Pete Beach’s small size and welcoming atmosphere make it ideal for a fun-filled family vacation or a quiet romantic getaway. The sugar-white beaches and clear gulf waters are obviously the biggest draw and aquatic entertainment abounds. You could spend your entire visit in the bathtub-warm waves swimming, parasailing, kiteboarding, stand up paddleboarding and more. Hop aboard a local cruise and tour the bay or get in some sailing and deep water fishing. Or simply bask in the sunshine along St. Pete Beach’s miles of pristine shoreline. Thanks to its western location on the gulf, St. Pete Beach is known for stunning sunsets so make sure you head to the water as the sun goes down. Once you’ve had enough of sand and surf, there is plenty to do away from the beach, too. Head downtown to the Corey Ave District where you’ll find art galleries, shopping, restaurants and more.
Day trips near St. Pete Beach
St. Pete Beach is conveniently located between some of central Florida’s biggest highlights. You could spend a day just visiting the art and history museums in St. Petersburg, an easy 20 minute drive away. From the Museum of Fine Arts to the Florida International Museum to the Dali Museum, boasting one of the largest collections of original Salvador Dali art outside Europe (even the museum’s architecture, with its geodesic glass dome, make it worth a visit.) Head to Tampa, 30 miles north, where you can visit Busch Gardens theme park, witness the 20,000+ ocean creatures at the Florida Aquarium (which includes a water play area for kids) or take in a show at the legendary Tampa Theatre. Roughly an hour’s drive south will get you to Sarasota, where you can visit The Ringling, a jaw-dropping Italian-inspired art museum built by a 1920’s millionaire with equally beautiful grounds worth strolling.
St. Pete Beach Accommodation
The town of St. Pete Beach is small enough that you can easily access all it has to offer no matter where you stay. Thanks to its barrier island location, the town is surrounded by waterways and beach access is fairly easy to come by. Pass a Grille Way offers generally easy access to the water along the most western shore, where you’ll catch those sunset views. If you like to be closer to the action, the historic Corey Ave District encompasses St. Pete Beach’s main downtown area, where you’ll find restaurants, bars, boutiques, and the Sunday farmer’s market.
Transportation in St. Pete Beach
Getting around St. Pete Beach is easy with the Suncoast Beach Trolley. This local trolley bus system offers access to neighborhoods (like Corey Avenue) and beaches across town, and goes as far as nearby Treasure Island. Buses run frequently and a ride will cost you $2.25 or $5 for a day pass.
