Pinellas Sun Coast
The St. Petersburg/Clearwater peninsula, called The Pinellas Suncoast, is located on
west coast, just 30 minutes from the city of Tampa; the Gulf of Mexico lies on the west and
Tampa Bay washes its east coast. The eight communities flourishing on this 28 miles strip
include St. Petersburg Beach, Treasure Island, Madeira Beach, Indian Shores, Indian Rock
Shores, Clearwater Beach, Dunedin, and Tarpon Springs.
The warm weather, the beautiful beaches and the wholesome atmosphere in the region attract
retiree's and visitors that want more from a vacation than just sunshine and relaxation.
Highlights in the area include art and history museums, Greek heritage, old churches, moonlight
cruises, bird sanctuaries and interactive marinas.
Caledesi Island, an undisturbed barrier island in Dunedin is ideal for swimming, shelling,
picnics, skin and scuba diving, nature study, and fishing, of course.
