Best beach!

Love the beach at the Don Cesar! It is private and well serviced. The crew that sells and sets up the chairs and umbrella's is always helpful and attentive.

The beach was very clean and beautiful and we thought it was much better than the New Jersey and Delaware beaches that we were used to.

While it was too cool for most of our week to spend much time on St. Pete Beach proper, it was spectacular when we were able to get on it. TIP: Dogs are not allowed. Would be five stars if we could take our dog on the beach!

My friend & I spent 2 days at a hotel right on the beach. What a great relaxing time. Lots of shops & dining along the main beach road.

A most perfect beach. What is there to say, the water is great, the beach wide and long. Plenty of shopping, and restaurants to choose from within a short drive. Choose where you stay carefully, most of the older hotels/motels have been updated but there are some uncomfortable places still. Off season the rates drop and everything becomes reasonably priced.

Beautiful, soft white sand. This beach was not crowded at all! Not a peak season, but still very nice. It was windy the week we were there, but not too cold. We walked the beach towards the majestic Don Cesar. There were a lot of kite surfers out to watch. This beach is a great beach to find seashells.

We have been vacationing in different areas of the Gulf trying to decide where to snow bird to in a few years. St Pete Beach area is now at the top if the list. Clean area with friendly locals and a stunning beach. Traffic isn't too horrible so getting around is pretty easy by car. Everything is walkable also.

We are only a block and a half so we are able to walk every day. Beach is never crowed even on the weekends. Gentile waves most days so great for families.

Beautiful white beaches which are easily accessible. Very relaxing. Many restaurants but not too many attractions in the beach area. Public transportation is convenient and cheap but the routes could be explained a little better and all bus stops should be put on a map.

You can walk this entire beach from one end to the other in a couple of hours and enjoy the many resorts and restaurants along the way. Great for kids to collect seashells. Amazing sunsets!
