“Very clean and safe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

A lovely beach with great sun beds and facilities. Be careful with small children as it gets deep very quickly.

“Gorgeous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

Everything we hoped for and more. We were visiting from Northern California, and looking for great beaches. I read that St. Pete's had recently been voted No. 1 Beach in the US and No. 5 in the World. We visited St Pete's Beach the last week of October at about 6-7:30 PM. We parked in the City Lot (across from the Chick-Fil-A) for $1.50 per hour. We were so pleased with the lack of people, the warm water, and the abundance of seashells. The sunset at about 6:45 pm was absolutely beautiful.
Had we come earlier in the day we could have rented beach chairs, umbrellas or water toys. Even though the water was warm enough to walk thru, I'm not sure I would have actually gone swimming this time of year.
St. Pete' is a beautiful beach, and certainly one I would visit again.
Note: the bridge toll to and from St. Pete's is $0.75 each way- so bring some quarters. Also, even though the sand is powdery and white, it can be a bit rough to walk on all the seashells. A pair of sand/waterproof sandals are a necessity.

“Wonderful Time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

Being from LA we see plenty of beaches. St Pete Beach is a beautiful beach and has one thing that you seldom get in LA - water warm enough to go into without a full wet suit. We were there in early October and the water temp was 82. Great time in the water even though we did share it with jelly fish and sting rays. The night life and dining is also top notch and there are many other areas nearby if St Pete Beach does not have what you are looking for.
