Beaches and Parks
Ranked second by TripAdvisor's 2015 Traveler's Choice Awards for Top U.S. Beaches, St. Pete Beach is a laid-back, white sand beach destination offering fun in the sun for visitors.
Caladesi Island and Honeymoon Island provide nearly five miles of direct access to the Gulf of Mexico. Honeymoon Island State Park is accessible by car. The pristine Caladesi Island State Park is easily reached by a modestly-priced public ferry that departs several times daily from Honeymoon Island State Park.
Fort Desoto Park is at the southernmost tip of Pinellas County, and just a quick drive from St. Petersburg. You can enjoy touring an historic colonial fort, walking trails, swimming, bird watching and fishing all on this protected island.
