Researching, finding, and selecting a couples retreat in Florida (or anywhere else for that matter) is equally exciting and strenuous as there are seemingly endless possibilities. A lot of factors go into the final decision, including price, daytime activities, natural beauty, on-site amenities, and, perhaps, beach access. Whether you’re planning a meticulously-detailed honeymoon, long-overdue marriage retreat, or spontaneous romantic getaway, you’ll find that sunny St Pete Beach is a deserving destination for your next escape.

The Best Couples Retreat in Florida: Gulf Strand Resort

Gulf Strand Resort rests along the Gulf of Mexico’s edge only steps from one of the four best beaches in the United States, according to TripAdvisor. We’re an inexpensive yet modern beachfront haven in the heart of peaceful St Pete Beach. To give you a “taste” of what we can offer you and your sweetheart here at Gulf Strand Resort, we’ve pieced together six reasons why St Pete Beach is the most romantic couples retreat in Florida.

1. The Beach

The St Pete area remains one of the most romantic couples retreat locations primarily because of our pristine, white-sand beaches. Regardless of the season, couples flock to our seaside paradise to dip their toes in the clear, turquoise water, sunbathe under the warm Florida sunshine, and strut along the sand with a refreshing beverage in hand.

2. The Price

Yes, we offer sweeping Gulf of Mexico views, modern accommodations, and easy access to nearby restaurants, bars, and clubs. But don’t forget about our everyday low prices—gulf-view condos start at just $115 per night.

3. The Gulf Views and the Beach Access

Most of our inexpensive, comfortable condos feature perfect sightlines to the Gulf of Mexico. Many of which have sizable, private balconies where couples can relax with a cup of coffee in the morning, and witness a breathtaking sunset at dusk. We might not be the only couples retreat in Florida to provide exclusive beach access, but you simply cannot beat our location to the area’s best hot spots.

4. The History

The Tampa Bay Area, which includes St Petersburg, is a diverse, beautiful region with loads of history. Couples frequent the Henry B. Plant Museum, Tampa Bay History Center, and Salvador Dalí Museum (among many others) to learn about the area’s unique past, thriving present, and bright future. There are several other architectural marvels worth visiting, as noted in this Visit Tampa Bay article.

5. The Restaurants

Every unforgettable couples retreat in Florida should include nearly a dozen romantic meals at a variety of authentic Gulf Coast restaurants. Within minutes (or steps) of our top-rated St Pete Beach honeymoon destination, you’ll discover ice cream shops, seafood shacks, Cuban sandwiches, fish tacos, and craft breweries. And don’t forget to read up about our favorite St Pete Beach and Madeira Beach restaurants.

6. The Water Activities
