Yes, there are dozens of top-rated things to do in St Pete Beach, including snorkeling, parasailing, and shopping, but the bargain hunter in all of us is always searching for the best value. And luckily for you, the fine folks here at Caprice Resort have compiled four of our favorite hidden gems, ranging from a comedy club to a soothing spa.
St Pete Beach, which was recently named the #4 beach in the U.S. by TripAdvisor, is home to a seemingly endless array of water activities, including snorkeling, deep-sea fishing, and parasailing. Whether you’re hoping to explore the Gulf of Mexico above water on a speedy boat or underwater with scuba equipment, there’s never a dull moment here in St Pete Beach! Luckily for you, a full day of beach relaxation, water activities, and delicious local cuisine is always seconds away from Caprice Resort.
Whether you’re a self-proclaimed “foodie” or just a lover of authentic regional cuisine, the meals that you enjoy in sunny St Pete Beach should leave a long-lasting positive stamp on your midwinter getaway. Most of us carry gleeful memories of specific meals that we’ve enjoyed while on a long-overdue getaway – that might be perfectly-spicy fish tacos, juicy blackened shrimp skewers, or authentic chicken tikka masala. One of the most common culinary requests we receive here at Caprice Resort is an authentic Cuban sandwich.
There’s never a wrong time to taste test some of Florida’s best ice cream, even in the heart of “winter” here in sunny St. Pete Beach. Not only is Caprice Resort steps from the white sand of Upham Beach Park and the clear teal waters of the Gulf of Mexico, but it’s a short stroll from three of the best St. Pete Beach ice cream shops. Nearly everyone has a sweet tooth, so treat the entire family to a delicious banana split, candy-sprinkled waffle cone, or a peanut butter parfait.
Upham Beach Park remains one of St Pete Beach’s last hidden gems. A stay at Caprice Resort guarantees you at least these three things: a clean and cozy accommodation, sensational poolside views, and direct Upham Beach access. It’s the perfect time to escape to our family-friendly resort, located in a quiet residential area and just blocks from prime shopping and restaurants. It may be difficult to pry you from our beautiful pool area, but you’ll want to spend an afternoon at spectacular Upham Beach.
