SUNSET CAPITAL OF FLORIDA; ENJOY IT AT ST. PETE BEACH
TRADEWINDS ISLAND BEACH AND POOLS
Isn’t it time to plan an effortless vacation to Florida at TradeWinds Island Resorts?
Our accommodations and attractions provide a wonderful setting for the entire family or a friends’ getaway, with enchantments for both the young and young-at-heart. From slides, beach or spa relaxations, and interactive pool activities to eco-adventures, arts and culture events, and days spent on one of the most beautiful beaches in the country, there’s always something new to do for each and every member of your family. With seven heated swimming pools plus an immaculate stretch of award-winning beach connecting TradeWinds’ two resorts; there are plenty of places to soak up fun and sun at this St. Pete Beach destination.
For a relaxing day at the pool, adults can escape to two adult-only pools. At Guy Harvey Outpost, the warm and sunny Oasis Courtyard is reserved for the quiet enjoyment of adults, with heated pool and large whirlpool, and at Island Grand the adult pool is next to Salty’s tiki bar, overlooking the beach.
A wading pool for our smallest guests is located next to the KONK pool and KONK Activities Center. Additionally, a small covered pool offers respite for the sun.
Poolside Invasions at the Beachfront Pools
We crank up the tunes for competitions and resort prizes at our beachfront pools. Check the Calendar for times. Complimentary pool towels are available near these pools.
When the sun drops below the horizon, it’s time to mellow out at the pool, grab a raft, jump in or sit poolside to watch a feature film on Island Grand’s inflatable big screen at the resort’s beachfront pool. Movies are shown Wednesday, Friday and Sunday night. Films are listed at the Adventure Center.
Who said St. Pete Beach was the Sunset Capital of Florida?
Former Governor Charlie Crist. He dubbed St. Pete Beach as the “Sunset Capital of Florida” in 2011, and to kick off the year, St. Pete Beach residents and visitors gathered at sunset to “ring in the New Year” with a bell. Now, the sunset bell is rung daily just as the Florida rays dip below the Gulf Coast.
“Our position on the planet, which provides some of the most beautiful sunsets, directly over the gulf, is really something worth celebrating daily,” says Renee Roos, owner and publisher of Paradise News magazine. So here’s to another year of unforgettable sunsets!
