From St Pete Beach to Clearwater Beach and the 9 Towns in betweeen... I love them all!!!

Madeira Beach

Treasure Island

St Pete Beach

When someone asks me which beach is better, I can never give a answer!!! They all have their uniqueness and charm that makes it hard for me to give just one answer. Here are the reasons why I have a hard time picking one!

Clearwater Beach-

  • That Beach... it may be the prettiest of the all the beaches!

  • Pier 60- Every night they have entertainment, vendors and food on the Pier. Then, every Friday and Saturday night they show movies at the Park by the Pier. One is usually a family movie and the other is more adult. So fun to do!!!

  • So many restaurants on the beach! Nothing is better than enjoying your meal while looking at the beach. It is good for the soul!!

Belleair Beach/Belleair Shores-

  • The homes along Gulf Blvd are GORGEOUS!!!!  (This includes Philadelphia Phillies, Ryan Howard's home) I love to drive up and down this section just to look at the homes! 

  • They have "private" beaches. There is very limited parking in Belleair Beach and Belleair Shores and no Trolley stops to bring in locals or tourists.

  • Zoning for the Belleairs do not allow for commercial buildings!

Indian Rocks Beach-

  • IRB as it is know to the locals has a small beach town feel. It is a great mixture of locals and tourist.

  • IRB Festivals. Every Fall you have the Taste of IRB and in the Spring "Beach Fest and many more in between! Mix of locals and tourists, they are a fabulous family friendly event!

  • The Restaurants.... So many of my favorite restaurants are located in IRB. Aqua Prime, Crabby Bill's, Villa Gallace (just to name a few!), you can not go wrong!

Indian Shores-

  • With over 90% of the properties being condos in Indian Shores and only 1 lot for public parking, the beaches along this stretch of the coast are not overly crowded. 

  • Smuggler's Cove Miniature Golf... fun times for the whole family! 

  • Salt Rock Grill- fantastic meal, great atmosphere. Great for cocktails or dinner!

The Redingtons-

  • Redington Shores, North Redington Beach, and Redington Beach- Each one is its own individual town. Out of the 3, Redington Beach is the most residential, mostly comprised of Single Familiy Homes. Redington Shores and North Redington is a combination of Single Family Homes and Condos.

  • Sweet Sage Cafe- Open from 7am-2pm, the food here is AMAZING. Breakfast all day and a lunch menu too and fresh squeezed Tangerine Juice all day!

  • Redington Beach Town Park - Not only is this a great park to take children too, but they also have some great events here; Santa and Holiday Tree Lighting, Easter Egg Hunts, Community Parties just to name a few!

Madeira Beach-

  • The small fishing town getting ready to get a re-fresh! There is a new downtown revitalization getting ready to happen, shops, restaurants and hotels along the marina.

  • ROC Park- Baseball fields, concerts, fishing tournaments and movies in the park. There is always something going on!

  • The Sweet "Brew"-nette- Organic coffee, pastries and sandwiches. Their Muffins are to die for!!! I have to stop for one everytime I drive past~

  • John's Pass - whether you are local or just visiting, it is a fun way to spend the day! Browse at the shops, eat at local restaurants or go on a dolphin cruise! They have it all here.

Treasure Island -

  • Sunset Beach- a little slice of paradise. The soft sandy beaches, reminiscent of Key West and Caddy's on the Beach.

  • Treasure Island has great restaurants and bars that are an easy walk and a great time!

  • The beach.... a wide expanse of sand on par with Clearwater Beach (in my opinion) and home to the "Sanding Ovations" Sand competition every November.

  • Gulf Blvd is comprised of mainly Condos, but the inlets have spectacular waterfront homes.

St Pete Beach-

  • Pass-a-grille- the southernmost tip of St Pete Beach. Home of the Hurricane Restaurant that has a fabulous sunset view.

  • Spinners one of  only 22 rotating restaurants in the US. Great views, great service, great food. It is a must!

  • Jimmy B's- Beachfront Bar with live bands and singers most days and nights. 

  • Neighborhoods tucked alongside the Intracoastal that give you small town community feel.

As you can tell, each town has their own charm and reasons to pick them! I can not choose and I am lucky enough that I live in the mix and all are my playground!
