Welcome to beach nirvana. Situated on a sun-drenched peninsula separating the Gulf of Mexico from Tampa Bay, St Pete and Clearwater offers 35 miles of award-winning, spectacular white-sand beaches that will satisfy anyone with a pair of flip-flops and a desire to turn relaxation into an art form.
The truth is, in St Pete and Clearwater, no two beaches feel exactly the same. Among the highest rated are Fort De Soto Park, an adventure-packed family-friendly getaway with activities galore, and beautiful Caladesi Island, a pristine barrier island accessible only by boat or ferry. St Pete averages 361 days of sunshine a year and is home to the world-famous Dali Museum.

Calling St Pete and Clearwater a watery paradise is an understatement. Here the beach and water sports are a big part of everyday life. Kite surfing, windsurfing, snorkelling, tubing, paddling and cruising on various watercrafts are favourite ways to enjoy the water and get a different perspective of the area’s beaches and waterways. But while the waterfront may be the prime attraction, there are dozens of outdoor adventures waiting to be discovered off the beaten path.
Discover Busch Gardens the extraordinary 335-acre adventure park. It brings together an unrivalled combination of incredible rides and amazing animals. Come and experience a new breed of speed on the ultimate launch coaster. Don’t miss Cheetah Hunt and the Cheetah Run. Take a self guided tour around one of the beautiful animal habitats; Jungala gives you the chance to come face-to-face with some of the world’s most endangered animals, Bengal tigers and orangutans.
Those venturing beyond the beach have a choice of the area's 26 communities, each offering a distinct charm, feel and heritage. Choose from the picturesque fishing town of Tarpon Springs to the Scottish-tinged village of Dunedin. Take advantage of fine dining, bars as well as festivals throughout the year. There’s also a wide range of speciality shops selling everything from antiques to beachwear.
Why not start with hip and cosmopolitan downtown St. Petersburg, home of the world-famous Dali Museum? Or head to artsy Gulfport, where galleries, shops and restaurants occupy Old Florida bungalows. End the day at Pier 60 on Clearwater Beach, where musicians, jugglers and other colourful characters gather daily to toast the Gulf sunset.
You'll find a wide variety of activities to choose from, including all types of water sports, pirate and sea life safari cruises and the Clearwater Marine Aquarium. Nature enthusiasts can get in touch with their wild side by kayaking and canoeing through the many mangrove trails or by cycling the 43 mile long Pinellas Trail.
