This is Florida at it's best. We walked the beach for miles. There are so many restaurants and hotels to choose from. They also offer many water sports to choose from. The beach was not crowded but even if it was there is plenty of room to spread out and play. I'll be back.

St. Pete Beach Beach is busy, but it is very pretty. If you can, catch a sunset. Or try a beach that is a tad less crowded.

Very clean beautiful beach, nice place for kids as well as adults.The sunsets are glorious and a great place to go for walks, If you walk in the water move the sand with your feet to move the stingrays.

You don't find Carribbean quality beaches almost anywhere in the US, but this area comes really close. Clearwater and St. Pete Beach have the best weather and sands, and the Gulf of Mexico is worth writing home about. Nice beach!

We stayed within eyesight of this beautiful beach. It was clean and not as busy as we anticipated. We walked down the beach to a beach bar and enjoyed playing in the water. We went parasailing for our first time! We all loved it! We will be back for sure!!!

Visiting in the slow time after thanksgiving. The beach is nice and wide, waves reasonably sized and water warm even this late in the year. Would definitely come back.

We stayed at Guy Harvey/ Tradewinds and were close to everything. Level 11 superb sunset location. 3 or more great entertainment options on the beach immediately next door. Nice clean beach with resort amenities. Many good restaurants to chose from.
