Step into the 33,500-gallon aquarium, catch a dive-in movie, focus on your fitness, or kick back in a floating cabana! There are just so many ways to enjoy the island life at this beachfront playground. Cruise the coastline on a stand-up paddle board, plunge down the three-story water slide, lounge by one of the five heated pools, or indulge your senses with relaxing spa treatments. At the end of the day, catch live music at one of the beachfront bars and roast some s’mores by a fire pit at sunset. Whatever type of Florida getaway you have in mind, you’ll find it here at St. Pete Beach. From your base in St. Pete Beach, you’ll be able to enjoy urban adventures, cultural experiences, world-class theme parks, sporting events, nightlife, shopping, and more.
