HOTELS BY SUPPLIER

 
 

Situated on a pristine sand-fringed peninsula separating the Gulf of Mexico from Tampa Bay, St. Pete/Clearwater offers 35 miles of award-winning, spectacular beaches that will satisfy anyone with a pair of flipflops and a desire to turn relaxation into an art form. Among the highest rated are Fort De Soto Park, an adventure-packed family-friendly getaway with activities galore, and beautiful Caladesi Island, a pristine barrier island accessible only by boat or ferry.

The truth is, in St. Pete/Clearwater no two beaches feel exactly the same. Those venturing beyond the beach will find a stunning collection of recreational and cultural surprises sprinkled among the area’s 26 communities, each offering a distinct charm, feel and heritage.

Also, don't forget to visit vibrant downtown St. Pete for al fresco dining, or why not combine with a stay in Tampa Bay for a perfect twin-centre holiday?
