20 miles or 30-45 minutes to Clearwater Beach. 12 miles to the Bay Beaches on the Courtney Campbell Causeway(Ben T Davis Beach and Picnic area - which is not as nice as the Gulf).

An easier route is to take I-275 South to the Pinellas BayWay exit(past St. Petersburg) to Fort DeSoto or St. Petes Beaches. Alot less traffic, alot less congestion, and direct route via the interstate. Fort DeSoto is about 30-40 minutes from Busch Gardens, and was voted the number one beach in North America.
