Written December 1, 2017. (Updated on January 14, 2022.)
From fireside s’mores to breathtaking sunsets, there are so many romantic moments to share at TradeWinds Island Resorts on St. Pete Beach. Whether you stay at the Island Grand or RumFish Beach Resort, you’ll discover one of the best romantic getaways in Florida.
Reconnecting with sand, sea and each other.
Your romantic beach getaway puts you on 31 acres of beautiful St. Pete Beach, consistently voted as one of the best beaches in America on TripAdvisor, where you'll be surrounded by natural beauty. Calming waves lap against the pristine shore, inviting you for a long walk or refreshing swim together. Cozy beach cabanas or swaying hammocks make the perfect nests for relaxing lovebirds. Or kick back at one of the adult-only pools, where you can enjoy the whirlpool while sipping delicious concoctions from the tiki bar.
But Mother Nature really turns on the charm when the sun sets and fills the sky with magical colors. Sharing this enchanting experience with your loved one is sure to put you in the mood for romance.
Share the excitement of being kids again.
Thrill to endless adventure with rides and water sports rentals. Plunge down a three-story water slide. Chase each other through the waves on a wave runner. Explore the coastline by paddleboards or kayaks. Dance under the stars to live music at a tiki bar. Or roast marshmallows at The SandBox Beach Lounge’s fire pit and create the perfect s’more as you recapture that carefree happiness of youth. It’s a feeling that makes TradeWinds one of the best romantic getaways in Florida!
Taste the romance.
If you feel a romantic escape is not complete without some wining and dining, then you’ll be delighted by the culinary experiences that await at TradeWinds. Dine beside a breathtaking 33,500-gallon aquarium at RumFish Grill. Enjoy an intimate candlelight dinner at Palm Court Italian Grill, which has continuously been honored as one of St. Pete Beach’s best restaurants by TripAdvisor. From fine wines and flights of delectable rums, to amazing dishes prepared by devoted chefs, to sunset views as inspired as the cuisine, you’ll be savoring every moment. In fact, you can even arrange to have a private dinner in a gazebo overlooking the Gulf. (For details and reservations, call 727.363.2258.)

Venture into vibrant downtown St. Petersburg to enjoy its thriving arts, dining and nightlife scene. From toasting cocktails along Beach Drive, to performances by The Florida Orchestra and other shows at The Mahaffey Theater, to performances at American Stage and FreeFall, urban excitement awaits to complement your romantic beach getaway.
