Beach Fun in Clearwater/St. Pete

by mmyerspa

I am traveling to Clearwater/St. Pete area with my friend and 12 year old daughter in July.

While in California, we had lunch and drinks at a beachfront restaurant, while my daughter swam in the ocean. Is there anything like this in the Clearwater/St. Pete area?

Any other recommendations on fun things to do?

Any recommendations for where we can have a secluded beachfront stay? We'll only be in town for 2 days, so we can't do a condo...

Hi,

There are lots of places to do these things.

In Clearwater Beach the Hilton Resort Hotel has a nice tiki bar area near the public pier and park. Frenchy's Rockaway grill is on the beach there too with good seafood and drinks. Shepard's Beach Resort has a popular tiki bar and food. You won't find too many secluded places in Clearwater Beach, mostly large hotels.

Stop by the John's Pass area in Treasure Island about 10 miles down the beach from Clearwater. They have a real nice waterfront boardwalk with shops and restaurants. Gators is where we often go for lunch, huge burgers, great view.

Within 6 to 8 miles either north or south from John's Pass there are dozens of Mom and Pop beach motels. Many are older but kept in very good condition. Prices are good in summer and vacancy should be no problem except possibly the July 4th holiday. Many of the larger hotels is this area such as the Hilton at North Reddington Beach have waterfront restaurants and bars. The Bilmar Hotel in Treasure Island has a Sloppy Joe's for food and drinks right on the beach.

Hope this helps a little,
Ken

Clearwater Beach is another option. Frenchy's restaurant is good and is literally on the beach with outdoor seating and adult beverages available.

The north side of the island is within easy walking distance of Frenchy's and has several cheap and clean mom & pop motels. I usually pop into the Royal Canadian Motel for spontanious stays since they almost always have rooms during the summer (Canadians can't stand the heat :).

I would not recommend staying on the south side of Clearwater, tho. It's too crowded and noisy for me to sleep, and it's not too far to walk from the north side if you want to check it out.

Travel Tips for Saint Petersburg

Dali's Late Phase

by yooperprof

The Dali Museum gives you a chance to see several distinct phases in the career of the artist/businessman. Not all of his work fits under the category of surrealism. But most of it is at least a little bit strange.

Packing List

by jessica777

bring a beach bag flipity flops mosquito repelant roaches wander the shores of fort desoto, along with strange looking snakes, and a ton of racoons. Besides the mosquitos its alright though, jk. avoid camping here in July or August

Water sports

by arasnosliw

Just think about it, water is surrounding you everywhere. Of course you have to try some type of water sport here in St. Pete's. You're surrounded by Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. Surfing, kayaking, windsurfing, diving, sailing, fishing...

While driving along one of the many causeways connecting the coastal beaches to the mainland, I encountered these young boys learning how to windsurf. I've always wanted to learn, so I ought to sign up for lessons myself! a swimsuit

A county park, Fort De Soto...

by Valentina777

A county park, Fort De Soto Park consists of a string of five small islands (keys) off the coast of St. Petersburg. The fort for which the park is named was built during the Spanish-American War in the late 1890's and is open to the public. The last brickwork fort built in the United States, the fort never saw action and was turned over to the county for use as a park in the 1940's. The beaches in the park are enormous, and numerous visitors stroll and sun themselves along their expanse while feeling totally isolated. North Beach faces the Gulf of Mexico, and East Beach offers a stunning view of the St. Petersburg Skyway. Massive picnic shelters are located at both the North Beach and East Beach areas.
HOURS OF OPERATION:

Sunrise to sunset, 365 days per year

ACTIVITIES:

Camping, swimming, fishing, picnicking, hiking, nature study, museum

DETAILED DIRECTIONS:

From St. Petersburg, take the Pinellas Bayway (SR 682) to ST 679 and follow it south to the park for six miles. Turn right at park headquarters for North Beach, and left for East Beach.

The best place for breakfast

by Valentina777

Exactly the best place in St. Pete to be eating breakfast is Seahorse tavern in St. Pete Beach.
Oldest restaurant in historic Pass A Grille. Established 1938 family owned and operated.
Open daily serving breakfast and lunch only.
8:00 A.M. - 2:30 P.M.
Closed Tuesdays. Big, fresh bagels toasted crisp and golden, and schmeared with melted butter. Pair one up with a fluffy omelet and you've got a breakfast that really gets your day off to a good start.
