AN ENRICHING PLACE FOR LITTLE EXPLORERS
TRADEWINDS' WATER ATTRACTIONS: SLIDES & MORE!
One St. Pete Beach destination. Two kid friendly resorts.
Florida Beach attractions + water activities
A Florida ocean playground, guests at TradeWinds Island Resorts can bounce, slide, ride and splash their way to fun. Boasting the best Florida Beach attractions, inflatable rides and water activities, enjoy a day (or your whole vacation) at St. Pete Beach, where the resort’s warm Gulf waters are the perfect treat. Activities are subject to a variety of weather conditions.
Test your balance on the new Surf WipeOut, an inflatable surfing challenge. Located beachfront at Guy Harvey Outpost, registered guests can enjoy unlimited rides, included in the resort amenity fee.
Located beachfront at Island Grand, guests (4-feet and taller*) can enjoy daily rides on "Bucky" the mechanical shark. Tokens are available at the Adventure Center, or guests can purchase an all-day package for unlimited rides on Bucky and select attractions. *Weight limit: 250 lbs.
What’s three stories tall, 200 feet long and can make a totally cool teenager squeal with delight? The High Tide Water Slide — a three-story inflatable slide located beachfront at Island Grand and included in the resort amenity fee. Guests must be at least 42" tall.
Each room can enjoy the use of a beach cabana as part of the value-packed resort amenity fee, and guests can rent additional cabanas (subject to availability). Once you’ve checked into your room, you can reserve your beach cabana online for the next day. Starting at 2 pm every day, you can select a standard view cabana. Front row cabanas may be reserved for $15 if available. Our Diamond and Platinum Paradise Rewards members get a complimentary front row cabana.
Take lounging to the next level. Guy Harvey Outpost offers three private VIP Cabanas located poolside at The SandBox beach lounge - offering cushioned furniture, flat screen TV, ceiling fan and your own personal server for the day.
Relax, kick back and kick off the evening by our fire pit. Roast marshmallows and savor the classic flavors of that perfect s'more! Nightly from 7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. in The SandBox beach lounge, weather permitting.
Guests at both resorts can enjoy The SandBox beach lounge. Teenagers, kids and parents can enjoy campfire s'mores at night, relax on comfy lounge furniture around open fire tables and enjoy live entertainment.
Start with a frosty libation at one of our beach bars followed by a nap in your very own beach hammock. Feel the sway of the ocean breeze as you escape in this serene corner of our two resorts.
FREE, included in the resort amenity fee
