About
This tranquil beach lies on the southern tip of the three-mile-long Treasure Island. It's clean and pristine (thanks to it being managed by a resort) and great for snorkeling and swimming. There are also beach chairs and umbrellas to rent for the day—stay till sunset for exceptionally gorgeous views. It's close to plenty of hotels, restaurants and bars nearby, making it a popular spot in the area. Visit on the weekend to witness a sunset drum circle; in November for Sanding Ovations, an annual sand-sculpting competition; or in January for a kite festival. – Tripadvisor

    Treasure Island Sunset Beach Wedding Location
    Treasure Island Beach which includes Sunset Beach and the Sunset Beach Pavilion is an amazing location for a beach wedding from an elopement to a vow renewal to an intimate beach wedding, this beach has the perfect sunset, the beaches are clean, and the water is perfect. As a wedding planner in Florida, have arranged many beach weddings in this area including an all inclusive ceremony and reception right on the beach. While other other beaches are crowded, this beach can be more laid back than the bigger tourist beaches. There are cottages, hotels, and condos aligned throughout the area if accommodations are needed.

    Wonderful White Sand Beach!
    We stayed at Island Inn Resort on Treasure Island. The wave/current was soft and low and good for kids and elderly. The sand is white and soft. The water was warm in early August. The beach was uncrowded, wide, and long.

    Nice beach
    Nice, large, clean beach. There’s live music along the boardwalk by the resorts. Rental chairs, games. The boardwalk is really nice. Lots of sea life and beautiful sunsets. Great place.

    Nice beach!!
    Very nice beach and a plus is the boardwalk. Alot of shells on the beach but get there early in the morning if you want the good ones along with sand dollars. Went during spring break and not crowded at all.

Beach is great perking is very expensive the worst thing is the amount of homeless under the bridge going to johns pass and the local law enforcement does nothing about them and they are doing drugs under the bridge but they will harass, people fishing, checking their fishing license I think the law enforcement there should really crack down on the homeless and the people doing drugs. It’s not a safe place after the sunset.

This tiny, charming place is loaded with places to stay but still manages to retain a small-town feel. Unlike nearby Clearwater, you can actually see the gulf in between the buildings. In Clearwater, the almost shoulder to shoulder high-rises, while beautiful do then to give the shore road a closed off feeling. At Treasure Island, whether you choose a gulf-facing resort or more modest accommodation inland, you won't be far from the water. The beaches here are deep and really wide, so expect a hike from either your hotel or any of the public beach access points to get to the water. Good to know: You can rent a "dune buggy" style wheelchair (while supplies last) at any of the public beach buildings, which also include showers, restrooms, a snack bar, and beach stuff for purchase. Bonus: You can borrow kid's life vests for free. There's a long cement "boardwalk" that bisects the space between the backs of hotels and the beach. While we visited, there was a collection of huge inflatable water slides that get inflated every day and deflated every night near the Bilmar Resort. Between the flat surfaces and the cement "boardwalk," this place is very walkable. Things to do: Plenty. The beach, restaurants, shopping, water sports. Visit John's Pass, an outdoor mall (paid parking here) for food, drink, shops, watercraft rentals, dolphin tours, sunset tours, and of course, the "pirate ship" experience aaargh! Good to know: Don't walk on the dunes to preserve ocean life. Wear sand shoes on the beach. You'll have to cross shell encrusted sand before you reach the hard-packed, smooth powdery sand near the shore.

Even after the September storm and the remodeling of the Beach Sunset Beach is still ok. The Beach authorities have done so far a great job 😀!

Excellent beach. Huge, so even when it’s a busy weekend, the beach never feels crowded. City staff do a great job maintaining the beach so it’s always clean
