Visit St. Pete/Clearwater’s media team works to spread the word about area hotels, attractions and beaches in the international media. Check out some of the latest coverage from around the world.

From the best bargains on the beach and eco-friendly sands, publications in the UK, Ireland and beyond are talking about how great St. Pete/Clearwater area.

Popular blogs, such as the UK’s Travelbite and Isabelle’s Travel Guide, wrote in-depth features on the unexpected enjoyment from the St. Pete/Clearwater area.

“On the last day of my trip, as I sat on the soft white sand of Clearwater Beach, that once enjoyed 768 days of sunshine in a row, I found that my view of the state had completely changed and it incorporated much more than I’d ever expected,” Esme Fox wrote on Travelbite.

UK’s second-most popular online publication, The Guardianand Ireland’s largest daily, Irish Independent, included area partners in their best bargain beach holiday locations lists, including Pier House 60 on Clearwater Beach.

“Stay bang in the middle of the action at Clearwater Beach, one of the liveliest beach resorts on Florida’s West Coast. Pier House 60, named after Clearwater’s famous pier…” The Guardian wrote.

And just last week, the website of Canadian magazine Travel + Escape (170,624 unique monthly visitors) showcased three of St. Pee/Clearwater beaches for its “4 Eco-Friendly Florida Beaches.” Honeymoon Island State Park, Caladesi Island and Fort De Soto Park were included.
