The beach is extra-wide in many places and we enjoy the sections where there are protected dunes. And the restaurants, grilles and shops; we've found our favorites. People watching is grand on...

Friends were visiting from Arizona and wanted to walk on the beach. They were impressed with the cleanliness of the beach, the plentiful parking, the "sugar sand" beach and the friendliness of the people on the beach. Do yourself a favor and visit St Pete Beach.

Great place to sit in the sun, watch a sunset, stroll along near the water, sometimes good shelling. Get a meal or a drink nearby.

It is a beautiful and fun beach for all. There is something for everyone, and the amazing Downtown st. Petersburg is only a 15min Uber ride away. Great places to eat, drink and have fun with the family without any of the huge crowds and the negatives that come with it.
