For the second year in a row, Clearwater Beach has been voted as America’s Best Beach on TripAdvisor’s annual list for 2019. It's the third time in 4 years the famous white sands of Clearwater Beach have taken top honours and set a new personal high of No. 6 in the World. St. Pete Beach came in at No. 4 in the US, reaffirming St. Pete/Clearwater's reputation of America's Best Beaches.

Beautiful Clearwater Beach not only has brilliant white sands but is also a hub of hubbub with a nightly celebration at Pier 60 filled with crafters, buskers and live music, a great place to watch the sunset.  On laid-back St. Pete Beach, build the perfect sandcastle, fly over the water in a parasail or go stand-up paddleboarding on the Gulf of Mexico.

Some of the most breathtaking scenery and invigorating experiences are found on the crystal-clear waters of the Gulf.  Rent a canoe or kayak to get closer to nature as you paddle through the peaceful mangrove trails.

Dial up the heat at St. Pete/Clearwater’s waterfront restaurants, rooftop lounges, nightclubs and bars. Whether it be grabbing a fresh grouper sandwich from one of the local beach bars or enjoying a farm to table dining experience, the area is well known for its culinary options. Along the craft beer trail you’ll stumble upon an array of small independent breweries crafting fresh artisanal beers. Nightlife in the area is vibrant and varied. St. Pete/Clearwater has one of the best nightlife scenes in Florida.

St. Pete/Clearwater is home to 26 distinct community neighbourhoods, from the Greek sponge fishing enclave of Tarpon Springs and Celtic-tinged Dunedin in the north to small town Safety Harbour and Madeira Beach.

Immerse yourself in some of the area’s awe-inspiring art and culture in downtown St. Petersburg. Here you will find the world-famous Dali Museum, featuring the largest collection of artist’s work outside of Spain, as well as more than 70 incredible street murals, which adorn the buildings around Central Avenue.

Located just 90 minutes from Orlando and 30 minutes from Tampa International Airport and Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, St. Pete/Clearwater is your perfect beach destination.
