Soft sand, warm waters, plenty of space, easy going and good live music (from bar to bar). A Great venue to check out is the Bongo Bongo Bar, Woodies and Willies. Avoid Harry's Bar for food!! Check out The Undertow bar for some good fun (18+).

St. Pete's Beach has beautiful white sand, turquoise water and Gulf breezes. There are many hotels on Gulf Blvd which have restaurants located directly on the beach that serve both lunch and dinner. My favorite restaurant on the beach is Bongos Beach Bar and Grille at the Grand Plaza Hotel (the round building). The location is perfect, the food and... More

Had a great time walking along the beach and enjoying the ocean. The beach was well kept and plenty of beach chairs to rent where we stayed.

Very nice, clean beach with soft fine sand. The water is crystal clear and usually very calm. There are a lot of hotels, bars and restaurants close by. Great Family beach!

Soft chaulky white sand, warm calm Gulph water. Sunsets that melt behind pink, yellow, purple, blue, white skies. Normally we travel on the East coast of Florida. I think that is going to change. Small town vibe. Not much stays open past 10. Even in the rain I am happy to be here.

Lots of options.. affordable,..people are very friendly...very laid back and informal (VG)..nice sunsets over the gulf, huge clean beach, beach bars, all level restaurants (near & mid distance), Publix supermarket-Dollar Tree, Chase interior ATM. Went in late August/early September so it was not too crazy...I assume it gets more crowded doing high season, but it was just perfect for us.... More

My wife and I stayed at the Don the last week of May 2015. I was very impressed with the beach. Very wide and filled with soft white sand. You know how some beaches get so hot you can hardly walk on them in the afternoon? Saint Pete doesn't get near that hot. We were able to walk as far... More
