St. Pete Beach was just named the Traveler’s Choice “Best Beach in America” on TripAdvisor, and it’s not hard to see why. St. Pete Beach offers gorgeous Gulf views, is home to some of the most iconic hotels in the country (welcome to The Don CeSar), offers ample dining and drinking options, and has ample space for folks to spread out and enjoy an afternoon.
Neighboring Maderia Beach also made it in the top 10.
“Very nice, flat beaches. The beach is very clean – we even saw a beach Zamboni used to groom it each morning. You can enjoy a very nice walk on the beach for miles.”
What did the voters have to say about St. Pete Beach?
From TripAdvisor: “A great walking beach with white quartz sand, clear calm water, and seashells by the truckload. The most perfect place to watch the sun set over the ocean.”
Spinners Rooftop restaurant and bar, the sprawling Tradewinds Resort and Guy Harvey Outpost, in addition to spots for paddle boarding, kayaking and ferry escapes, what’s not to love?
St. Pete Beach is just a quick drive from downtown St. Petersburg and so worth the trip.
It also ranks as the fifth best beach in the world.
Last summer, TripAdvisor’s list of America’s Best Beaches ranked Siesta Key as the top sandy escape in the Sunshine State.
The pristine beach is a photographer’s dream come true. Stunning white quartz sand, turquoise waters, beautiful areas to enjoy a picnic, and tons of food and fun to be had in the immediate area make Siesta Key Beach such a sought after, and revered escape.
