The beach was quiet and beautiful. The sand was nice...there were a lot of tiny shells along the shoreline versus just sand like at Panama City Beaches. We found beach chairs to rent easily. The water was nice and refreshing. We would return. Family friendly...laid back environment.

You won't find many beaches like this one. The white sand and size of this beach is phenomenal. What are you waiting for? Plenty to do and lots of places to eat.

We only had 2 full days on the beach but they were nice. The beach has soft sand and easy water to get into. There are good places to hunt for shells too!

Kick back, relax, and enjoy this beautiful beach. Cabanas and chairs are available for rental. If it's adventure you are looking for, jet skis, parasailing, paddle boats, banana boats, and dolphin sighting trips are available for a fee.

Go a little north to Treasure Island or Madeira and save yourself the trouble!!! This beach is dirty with rough sand, homeless drunks sleeping during the day and loads of trash. So disappointed since we spent nearly $40 to park for 3 hours!! Awful. Would not recommend.

St Petes Beach is beautiful. The most gorgeous sunset I've ever seen. The white sand beach was awesome and clean. Various people flock here from families with children to couples young and old. Locals frequently visit as well as out of towners like us from Utah.

I loved St. Pete Beach. Beautiful strip of white sand beach. Not too rowdy. I can't wait to go back!

Got up every morning and walked miles while collecting shells. Easy to walk on barefoot with lots of birds. Several bars/restaurants to stop at along the way. Beautiful sunsets

Beautiful white, soft sand beach. Very wide. Rental cabanas. Rental water sports all over or just relax in the blue Gulf of Mexico! A little chilly 70 degrees but refreshing on an 85 degree day. Plenty of shells to look for as well.
