Visit St. Pete/Clearwater

St. Pete/Clearwater offers 35 miles of award-winning, spectacular white-sand beaches and breath-taking sunsets. With an abundance of arts and cultural must-dos, adrenalin-fuelled water sports and a fast-growing food and craft beer scene, this is the perfect holiday destination for families, couples and singles alike.

St. Pete/Clearwater’s beaches have consistently been named among the best in TripAdvisor’s Travellers’ Choice Awards. In 2021, St. Pete Beach was named America's #1 Beach and the World's #5 Beach. 

Clearwater Beach not only has brilliant white sands but is also a hub of activity with a nightly celebration at Pier 60 filled with crafters, buskers and live music, and 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.

Opened July 2020, the St. Pete Pier is the anchor of the highly anticipated St. Pete Pier District. Visitors can expect plenty of open green lawn space, observation decks, interactive exhibits about the local marine life, artwork and installations from local artists, a vendor and artisan marketplace, fishing deck, and a variety of restaurants and bars, surrounded by 360-degree views. USA Today recently named the pier as the #2 Best New Attraction in the U.S.

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.

Immerse yourself in some of the area’s awe-inspiring art and culture in downtown St. Pete. 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.

St. Pete was named one of Condé Nast Traveler’s Top U.S. Cities for 2020 in their annual Traveler’s Readers’ Choice Awards, one of the most coveted awards in the travel industry.

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