Superb beach

Excellent beach. Has great beach bars, amenities such as toilets, changing rooms are all clean & tidy. It stretches so far I don't think it could ever be crowded.

Nice clean beach for the family. Sugar Sand is soft and sunsets are unforgettable. No lifeguards on duty when we were there but there were many different vendors from a chair to parachute gliding.

The water is a bit chilly but people were brave enough to get in while I was there. The beach is a great place to go for a walk or lounge around & soak up the sunshine! The temperature is in the upper 70s with a mild breeze that makes the perfect relaxing combination. There are hotel along the beach... More

St. Pete Beach is a great spot. Not as crowded as Clearwater Beach, but still has lots of good restaurants.

My husband and I love St Pete Beach - it's the only place we vacation! We've been many, many cool places, but this is the best. The warm, crystal clear blue water is amazing. We even got married on the beach here (at the southern end, Pass-A-Grille)

Gorgeous, clean and very popular with the tourist population. Hotels range from mid- to expensive, but you'll find something you like for sure. Many restaurants and bars to choose from within walking distance of any hotel you choose. Great place to stay. Walk during the warm weather and enjoy the sunset from your beach chair.

Amazing place to watch the sunset with your " so". Depending on how many clouds there are in the sky, you may get an explosion of reds and yellows. Just sit down and enjoy!

My review is pretty simple. If you are looking for a morning until night crazy beach party, St Pete Beach is not for you. But if you are looking to get a good night's sleep, spend a great day on the beach swimming/tanning and then having a good meal and a fun night at a beach bar, then SPB is... More
