One night on Sunset Beach on Treasure Island and you'll be Hook-ed

Perched on the southern tip of Florida's Treasure Island, Sunset Beach is a buzzy oceanfront community famous for its incredible sunsets. Located on the Gulf Coast near St Petersburg, Sunset Beach attracts a colorful blend of watersports fanatics and beach bunnies, plus a loyal LGBT crowd. Get your Floridian beach adventure off to a great start by booking a Sunset Beach vacation rental overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. Lined with hip beach bars and seafood shacks, don't miss a leisurely stroll along the mile-long boardwalk for the best sunset views.

Things to do

Surrealism and sunflowers - Sunset Beach's culture and horticulture

Away from the beautiful beaches, St. Petersburg is crammed with culture. A 10-mile drive east is The Dali Museum in St. Petersburg. The outlandish modernist building on St. Pete's waterfront houses more than 2,000 works by the Spanish artist, and is the largest collection of Dali's work outside Europe. There are guided tours on offer, including 1 for kids. If you prefer sunflowers to surrealism, an 11-mile drive north of Sunset Beach is the Florida Botanical Gardens. It has over 150 acres of lush themed horticultural displays, including the Rose, Tropical, and Butterfly Gardens.

Activities

All that glitters is not gold - digging for treasure on Sunset Beach

With miles of rippling blonde sands lapped by the warm waves of the Gulf of Mexico, Sunset Beach is a big draw to the island. It's 1 of 3 main beaches on Treasure Island. Loved by watersports fans, who come to sail, waterski, and surf, it's also popular with families and couples who come to picnic on the palm-fringed sands. Sunset Beach is a famously firm favorite of the LGBT crowd, and there are a variety of colorful buzzy beach bars dotted along the sands. The beach is equipped with a cafe, restrooms, and showers, plus a playground for the kids.

Weather

Sunset Beach sizzles in the summertime

If you want year-round sunshine, then Florida is the place for you. Sunset Beach and St.Petersburg benefit from a balmy subtropical climate. Long, hot summers and short, deliciously mild winters, it seems there's no bad time to visit. Summer is the most popular season and Sunset Beach vacation rentals get booked up in advance. However, June through November is also hurricane season, so there's a higher chance of tropical rain storms and high winds. Spring is a particular pleasant time, when the days are sunny and largely dry, and temperatures can reach a sizzling 80 degrees.

Natural features

Hey, hey it's the manatees

Overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, Sunset Beach is a lively beachfront community on the southern reaches of Treasure Island. A 10-mile drive from St. Petersburg, it's also just 15 minutes from Boca Ciega Bay Aquatic Preserve and the Pinellas County Aquatic Preserve. Together covering an area of 350,000 acres, these protected seashores and mangroves have become a haven for marine life, shore birds and coral. Follow the trails to spot nesting pelicans, jumping dolphins and even the occasional manatee, it's a must for all wildlife lovers.
